  • New York

Shearman & Sterling partner Stephen Giove (New York-Capital Markets) and Byron Loflin, founder and CEO of the Center for Board Excellence, spoke in a webinar moderated by Ben Maiden, editor of Corporate Secretary, on October 18, 2017 at 12:00 p.m (EST).

Amid a shift toward greater and more evolved shareholder engagement, companies face growing investor scrutiny of how directors are selected and their work is assessed. Corporate secretaries, general counsel and other governance professionals need to make sure their boards are aware of the latest demands from shareholders and best practices in evaluation so they can keep up with their peers and avoid potentially tricky proxy access situations.

The webinar provided insight and practical tips on:

  • How to lead an effective board evaluation process
  • What board evaluation trends are relevant to your organization
  • How an effective process improves and impacts your board’s performance
  • What to look out for in the coming proxy season
