How prepared is your board to help your organization weather an economic pullback?

Dealing with a financially distressed company is a complex and time-consuming undertaking for directors. The more prepared the company and its directors are, the greater the likelihood of success.

Osler and the Institute of Corporate Directors commissioned a survey of board members across Canada to understand board knowledge on early warning signs and how prepared directors are to act in the event of financial distress. Results from the survey and Osler analysis and insights will be published in a joint Osler-ICD report, due in mid-November. 

ICD and Osler will also host a series of lunches with panel discussions of the survey findings and Q&A sessions with independent board members and other experts.
