Learning About Swedish Board Operations
Neld International Consulting welcomes you to Workshop on Board Work April 22 at 17.00-21.00
One can hardly read a newspaper without somehow reading about board work. But the papers only reflect certain aspects of board work – often scandals or quotas. Professional Boards are something else.
Is board work for everybody? Why is professional board work important and what can it offer you as an entrepreneur or a board member? What cultural differences are there between Swedish and foreign boards?
In this workshop, you get an introduction to the Swedish corporate governance model, strategic board work, legal responsibility/liability for a board member in Sweden, board work structure and methods, integrity and diversity of the Board, the Chairman’s role and what you should consider before entering a board. Either you’re self-employed who are thinking about how you may benefit from an active board or you are a board member-to-be in Sweden.
Margareta Neld, founder and owner of Neld International Consulting and Women In
Progress, leads the workshop. Margareta is an organizational consultant, advisor, mentor/coach and has 18 years of board experience as co-owner and Managing Director.
