In collaboration with NEDA.
Join us for the final webinar in our three-part series, Reputation … Reputation … Reputation – The Three Faces of Contemporary Risk Management, where Kroll and NEDA Chairman, Graham Durgan, will host a discussion on the reputational risks associated with doing transactions (M&A) and managing the external pressures brought about by stakeholder and shareholder activists.
The focus of this session will be around the post-pandemic, topical boardroom issue of an acceleration in “portfolio restructuring.” The panel will consider the extent to which an increasing focus on non-financial issues continues to broaden the challenge faced by boards and non-executive directors (NEDs)—protecting both their own and the corporate’s reputation while fulfilling their fiduciary duties to shareholders—all in the glare of what may be a major transaction or an unwanted activist attack.
