If you could think of just one board expert to give you advice, whom would it be?

Maybe someone who has been there and done it all?!  Perhaps someone who has served on a variety of corporate boards, going back 30 years, including

  • A variety of structures, from public and private to ESOPs
  • A wide range of industries
  • In 4 countries and 3 continents
  • Situational from start-ups to mature companies to navigating questions of survivability
  • Someone who has also worked in the public sector, from the White House to City Hall

Someone with this varied background would have seen a lot of governance situations and challenges over time. This would be so helpful since board service today is much more challenging than ever before.

Fortunately, I know someone with this exact pedigree: Tom Leppert.

I sat down with Tom during the National Association of Corporate Directors’ (NACD) Global Board Leaders’ Summit

Summit is the largest and most important director forum in the world, where the greatest minds in governance convene to take on the largest issues facing today’s boardrooms and collectively discover the future of exemplary board leadership.

Convening nearly 2,000 corporate executives and board members, the Summit brought together the best and the brightest—cutting-edge thought leaders and industry experts—for four days of dialogue, interactive workshops, and unprecedented networking opportunities.

It was great fun recording a live episode of my podcast during Summit.  We had an amazing discussion, including some great questions from the audience.
