Stewards of the Future: Boardroom or C-Suite?
In the new knowledge economy, in which constant newness is the norm, corporate and government leaders must possess an exquisite ability to anticipate and prepare for change.

We brought together a diverse group of senior thought leaders, most having served on multiple boards, to discuss the following:

- How the knowledge economy is driving the need for greater diversity in the boardroom
- The role boards must take to help make decisions in the face of risk and uncertainty
