About the Program
The program is designed for HITEC’s senior technology executives who are seeking to enhance their understanding of the boardroom and have an interest in positioning themselves as candidates for a corporate board seat. The program will provide insights on emerging trends and leading practices in corporate governance, board oversight of strategy and risk, and other board topics.
Since 2017, HITEC has partnered with KPMG to host the Board Readiness program at HITEC’s Leadership Summits. In 2021, the program pivoted to a 10 month virtual program including six sessions for a cohort of 60 executives.
Over the course of the program you will gain insight on emerging boardroom trends and leading practices including board oversight of strategy and risk, talent, technology, compliance and financial reporting. In addition, we will showcase HITEC’s members who are currently serving on corporate boards.
Susan Angele and Stephen Brown are Senior Advisors, Board Governance, at KPMG's Board Leadership Center. Through an array of programs, KPMG’s Board Leadership Center engages with directors and business leaders to help articulate their challenges and promote continuous improvement of public and private company governance. The Center champions outstanding governance to help drive long-term corporate value and enhance investor confidence.
