09:00    Welcome & Introduction by Boardroom Review Chair, Jason Laity, Independent NED & Head of Fintech Digital Jersey Limited

09:10    Evolving Board practice in Jersey - where to focus in a world of challenge and change? John Harris, Chairman of the Crestbridge Group & NED on the Nedbank Private Wealth Limited Board

It has become widely accepted over recent years that the outlook of the traditional board needs to change. As we enter the 2020s, this session will look at the key trends that all board members should be scrutinising to ensure they continue to evolve, champion change and remain fit for purpose.  

09.50    Addressing Risk in Times of Crisis.  Tony Gardner-Hillman, Independent Director & Corporate Strategist

The range of crises organisations could face today are myriad and it is essential to be prepared no matter what form these might take. The difference between handling a crisis well, or badly, can have a lasting effect on reputations well beyond the crisis itself. This session will feature practical case studies on how to react when faced with the unexpected.

10:35    Coffee Break

11:00      Digital Skills for Directors.  Chris Clark, Founder & CEO, and Geraldine Evans, Chief Learning Officer, Prosperity 24.7 

If you’re a board director, you must pay attention to digital, even if it’s not your area of expertise. Arguably, all boards should now have the capability to drive effective strategy and mitigate the risks with operating in an every increasingly digitalized world. This session will explore how boards can ensure they are ‘digitally savvy’.

11:45    ESG in the Boardroom.  Alison Cambray, Sustainability & Climate Change Specialist, PwC.  Eva Vogt, Independent Sustainable Business Consultant

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues have been steadily rising to the top of board agendas.  However, a number of recent developments have sparked a sea change in this increasingly complex area and thrust the role of the Board into the spotlight.  What is ESG, why does it matter and where will it sit within a director’s duties in the years to come?
