Please join us for KPMG Spring Director Roundtable: Envisioning the Future and its Impact on Strategy
Dramatic change, disruption, and uncertainty continue to shake up long-held strategic assumptions and require an ever-sharper focus on what's ahead. Developing a vivid picture of the future-what will the business and industry look like in one, three, five or more years out?-is essential today as companies consider how that future will impact strategy.
NACD members are invited to join KPMG and director peers for this timely dialogue.

Risks Posed by Disruptive Technologies: Lessons from CES (Consumer Electronics Show)
Board members must become aware of the numerous challenges, and potential opportunities, posed by what is an unprecedented wave of game changing technologies happening at the same time in order to meet their responsibilities to shareholders. Many of these disruptive technologies, driverless cars and trucks, AI, robotics, wearables, virtual reality, to name a few, were on display at this years' CES. CES offered more than just a glimpse into what is now being developed and what is coming that you need to be aware of as directors. We are fortunate to have at our breakfast program, a diverse panel of CEO's and board members who are on the front lines of dealing with these issues. The panel will be led by Erin Essenmacher, Chief Programming Officer, NACD, who attended CES and interviewed leading authorities on what our realities will be tomorrow morning, as well as the day after, and produced the very helpful NACD CESÂ® 2018 Experience videos.
NOTE: Non-Members this is an open event and will not count against the two and join requirement.
