NAPABA Solo & Small Firm Network CLE Webinar*
Self-Grooming for a Public Company Board Seat: An Intentional Approach
Tuesday, Sept. 20, 4-5 p.m. EDT
Have you ever wondered about what it might take for you to be invited to join the board of directors of a Fortune 500 company? If so, then please join us for a webinar designed to help you on that journey.
During this free one-hour session, you will get a behind-the-scenes peek at what goes on inside the corporate boardroom and learn how Fortune 500 company boards evaluate director, board and committee performance, and what they are primarily looking for in board member candidates. In addition, we will explore ideas on how to get noticed by decision makers.
Public companies are looking for highly analytical individuals like you who have what it takes to join and be strong performers on their boards of directors. With external pressures from institutional investors, proxy companies and others on public companies to increase the number of directors who are from outside the company (as well as upcoming guideline changes that reduce the number of corporate boards on which individual directors may concurrently serve), that need will continue to grow.
Led by Curtis Hom, the founding attorney of Innova Legal Group (and former SSF Committee co-chair and former board member of NAPABA and the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies, APAICS.org), this webinar is ideally suited for attorneys and other professionals who are serious about taking their careers to the next level and are committed to getting that done.
Curtis Hom works directly with boards of Fortune 500 companies on their annual director, board and committee performance evaluation processes. Drawing from a unique combination of real world experience and lessons learned from engaging in discussions and interviews with board members of public and private companies across different industries (as well as leading executive recruiters), Curtis Hom is willing to share his insights about the director selection process, evaluation criteria and what distinguishes finalists from other highly impressive candidates.
