11th Annual Goodwin Directors Forum

Mandarin Oriental Boston
776 Boylston St

Goodwin’s 11th Annual Directors Forum took place on June 1, 2017 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston, MA. This annual program is focused on issues affecting directors of public companies.

At this year’s forum, we took an inside-out look at the ever changing landscape of public company boardrooms. Have you noticed that the person sitting next to you in the boardroom is Joanne not Joe? Have you been discussing things at board meetings like how cars can talk to washing machines or whether legalized gambling or marijuana may present a business opportunity? Has your board recently encountered a crisis situation as a result of a Tweet that went viral? One thing is for sure, this is not your father’s boardroom.
