Learn the ins and outs of the Modern Boardroom, including societal shifts leading to changes in board construct, executive skills desired in the boardroom, and the different types of board assignments.
Articulate, well-informed speakers. Effective moderation of the topic, too!
This session provided me with a very good understanding of how ESOPs work. And, I appreciate the engagement and casual discussions among the participants. It is refreshing to see. I am enjoying my membership.

I thought Adam's honesty and insight into small-cap companies was excellent and helps us all ensure we do our due diligence before joining and we set the right expectations of ourselves and the company.

One of the best salons. Straight talk, reality check and actionable advice especially with evaluating risk.
I didn’t know much at all about ESOPs and now have a good idea of the basics and implications for board service there.

Very important topic about going on small cap boards. It is not covered enough.

Susan RepoMake Board Onboarding a Success
Beth was fabulous. I could see that she had truly prepared with thoughtful, practical and useful information - even beyond the subject of Onboarding (like researching, accepting, etc.). For me, this was the best Virtual Salon that I've attended.

Very useful discussion regarding being on (and to a lesser extent getting on) boards.
Cheryl PorroBoard Management & Effectiveness
I am not yet on a board so I was more listening in. I think if I were new to a board it would be very valuable.
Sue OlsonEnsuring Your Onboarding Experience is a Success
I really enjoyed the pragmatic way Beth positioned the conversation. I wrote down several nuggets that are useful. One phrase that i really loved was "Once burned, twice shy". Super useful to discerning in potential board opportunities.
I had no real understanding of ESOPs before this salon. It was very informative, especially hearing from a number of people who serve on ESOP boards or companies.
It's been years since I've reviewed ESOPs and impact to the financials. Interesting to hear about it from board POV. Thanks.

Very good presentation, but not as comprehensive of small cap board info as I would have liked, more case studies.
