Is your company ready for the disruptive nature of new technology and competitors? What about your board?

Across every industry, we’re seeing old models upended by technological advances that make it easier for small startups to rapidly overthrow industry strongholds and leave longstanding companies in their dust. Advancements in technology, artificial intelligence, consumer markets, new organizational forms, and altered social trends can be exciting, but only if your organization is ready.

In a free, hour-long live webcast, CCL President & CEO John R. Ryan, Senior Vice President William Pasmore, and 500 Startups Partner Emily Chiu will discuss how to keep your board ahead of these cross-industry disruptions. The webcast — offered by Agenda Education — is part of a monthly series designed to explore director education. Access is complimentary when you sign up for a free 3-week Agenda trial, and participants will receive a certificate of participation.

The hour-long live webinar begins this Wednesday, May 3, at 3 p.m. EST. Sign up now!
