Director Stand-up Conversation Series: Climate Change


Director Stand-up Conversation Series

 Our Director Stand-up Conversation Series was born out of attending endless hour (+) long webinars and Zoom meetings in 2020. We saw an opportunity to give time poor directors the ability to get bite size insights and actions through content rich, highly focussed discussion.

Welcome to the Directors Australia Stand-up Conversation Series! Our knowledge, experience and insights delivered to you, bite size.

Episode 1: Climate Change

In this video (on LinkedIn) we discuss:

  • The acceleration and relevance of climate change to boards and directors
  • The importance of understanding why directors are at risk of breaching their duties if not taking appropriate action
  • Key actions that we suggest boards and directors should consider.
