“There is a generational shift occurring in our Boardrooms and it's a pivotal time for the Director community. The exponential speed of change means Boards and governing bodies needs to be agile, adaptable and constantly evolving. We are all being challenged by the new world order and contemporary Directors must bring to the board table a suite of new skills such as digital literacy, transformational awareness, customer insights, diversity and inclusion”
