Julie Norris (MBA 1994), Senior Client Partner, Board & CEO and Legal Services Practices at KornFerry International
As companies seek to address the challenges and opportunities brought about by digital disruption, driving global growth, and entering new markets, their boardrooms are also in transition. Board directors are looking around the table and recognizing the need to bring new perspectives into the boardroom. The demand for technology, marketing, financial, geographic, and core industry expertise in the boardroom will continue to grow in 2017, as will the interest in bringing more people of diverse backgrounds - gender, ethnicity, age, etc. to the table. This session will focus on:
  • what boards are looking for in 2017,
  • how boards go about recruiting new directors, and
  • how to effectively position yourself for board opportunities.
