Why Competent Boards?

For almost 30 years I have had the opportunity to advise global business leaders on how to turn sustainability into strong financial results.

Leaders are asking me for cutting-edge knowledge – and what could be better than offering that in a convenient and collaborative way.

Competent Boards is a place for future and current directors and business leaders who want to learn from each other, grow their competencies, and improve their organization’s resiliency. Read Mrs. Bank Jorgensen’s bio here.
