Stewards of the Future: A Guide for Competent Boards

by Helle Bank Jorgensen

Today's boards must contend with a wide range of stakeholders who can affect the fortunes of a company - customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders, politicians, activists, and social-media influencers, among others.

This book argues that boards need to not only define the purpose of their company but have the insight to ask the right questions on complex issues such as climate change, ESG, corruption, cybersecurity, human trafficking, supply-chain resilience, and more.

With contributions from world leaders as well as international case studies, Stewards of the Future provides board members with a practical guide to mitigate the risks and seize the opportunities.
