The Future Boardroom™

By choice, not by chance

What is The Future Boardroom?

The Future Boardroom is a Competent Boards thought leadership initiative, shaped by a global community of best-in-class board members, executives, investors and experts. We also invite young voices and other stakeholders that are and will be forming The Future Boardroom.

The Future Boardroom aims to raise the bar for boardroom excellence and contribute to the overall success of organizations and societies. The purpose of this initiative is to deliver the insights that board directors around the world will require to plan for and to be ready for the world we all must navigate.

Why should you join?

  • Get priority access to a wealth of research and case studies on best practices in board governance, helping board members stay up-to-date on the latest trends and issues affecting the boardroom.
  • Stay ahead of the game with the exclusive insights from experts who are investing in the development of the current and the next generation of boardroom leaders. Together, we want to ensure that organizations have access to the skills and expertise needed to navigate the complex challenges of the future.
