Innovation-Led Boards

Peter L. O'Brien on boardroom governance

Hosted by:
Dianne Jacobs

March 21, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free – $25.00

Board leadership has the power to generate growth through governance. In the best boards, directors set the course toward ever-greater stakeholder engagement and shareholder value, directing organisations where they need to go. Those that link innovation into their work on strategy, culture, risk, investment and performance achieve even stronger outcomes.

As the pressures on boards become increasingly complex – with shareholders clamouring for action on sustainability, diversity and technology – how can directors drive innovation-led boardrooms and organisations?

We are delighted that Peter L. O’Brien, a Managing Director at Russell Reynolds Associates, will lead this conversation for Melbourne Forum.

Peter is a trusted advisor to boards and CEOs on corporate governance, board effectiveness, succession planning, executive development, and leadership search and transformation. He is a member of Russell Reynolds Associates’ Global Board & CEO Advisory Partners Sector and he leads the firm’s business across Asia Pacific.

Based in Sydney, Peter advises both listed and private sector companies across a wide range of industry sectors. He is an expert at developing highly effective leadership teams and boards in Australia and internationally.

This digital event will explore the challenges for Australian boards and non-executive directors in harnessing disruption, creating opportunities, developing sustainable practices and integrating innovation into the fabric of business.
