In terms of making corporate governance more effective world-wide, what were the lessons of the recent financial crisis? What specific techniques can and should modern boards use in order to be not only more effective in the short-term, but also more accountable for long-term performance and sustainability?

Professor Martin Hilb, professor of business administration at the
University of St. Gallen in Switzerland, founder of the IFPM Center for
Corporate Governance, and winner of the gold medal in Corporate Governance
awarded by the International Academy of Quality, will speak about successful
board management tools. Based on his many years of consulting and research
at successful global companies, Professor Hilb will review major lessons
learned from the financial crisis by both regulators and board members and
describe the various practical "board management" tools which he has
introduced in well-known multinational companies to increase their

Governance effectiveness.  These tools include using evaluations, peer
review, feedback loops, holistic vision techniques, and integrated board
design and execution. He is also Managing Director of the Institute for
Leadership and HRM and its Center for Corporate Governance, President of the
Institute for Business Ethics, Chairman of the Swiss Youth Research
Foundation, and Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors of the University of
Lucerne in Switzerland.
