G100 BoardExcellence and J.P. Morgan's Board Leadership Forum Series

As the world responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, corporate board directors play a vital role in navigating the path forward for their companies and management team. G100 BoardExcellence and J.P. Morgan’s Director Initiative are bringing together a select group of boardroom leaders from significant companies to participate in an interactive discussion on the strategy and steps to restarting business.  We invite you to join us for one or all of these Board Leadership Forum Series sessions.

Boards and leadership face a challenging restart ahead – protecting employees and customers, rebooting supply chains, reconfiguring physical plant, navigating reputational issues, and anticipating legal and regulatory scrutiny – while maintaining a focus on long term value as well as new opportunities on the horizon. These peer-engaged discussions will explore the path back to work after COVID-19 lockdown and recovery in a private off-the-record forum.

  • Meetings consist of 30-45 minute discussions
  • Moderated fireside chats moderated by Mary Thompson, G100 BoardExcellence co-lead and former CNBC and Bloomberg reporter
  • Private, off-the-record and subject to Chatham House Rules
  • Participation is by invitation only
