The Global Board Leadership Initiative
The initiative is running from 2019 – 2022
The Global Board Leadership Summit – Singapore, 5-6 September 2022
Board Leadership Practices have developed substantially over the past few years. Corporate Boards have become more proactive and accountable and are significantly more involved with corporate strategy, CEO succession and risk oversight whilst constantly realigning the board’s priorities to developments in macro-economic and political uncertainties, cyber risks, digitisation and disruption, sustainability and responsible governance, and to the new trends in shareholder engagement and stewardship practices.
The Global Board Leadership Initiative aims at improving global board leadership practice with focus on value creation and sustainable growth – for the good of the individual firm, shareholders and society at large. The Initiative is based on a close collaboration between three globally leading environments for Corporate Governance and Board Leadership Practices: Singapore, Northern Europe, and North America.
Jointly hosted by the Human Capital Leadership Institute (HCLI) of Singapore and the Board Leadership Society of Denmark, the first and second Global Board Leadership Summit (GBLS) were held in Singapore on 9-10 January 2019 and Copenhagen on 30-31 October 2019 respectively.
An exclusive, by-invitation-only event, GBLS has brought together more than 100 board leaders from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, North America and South Africa to inspire and lead discussions across borders on new ideas and solutions to the opportunities, challenges and risks facing global corporations today.
