6/9/17 Houston | NACD and KPMG Spring Roundtable
June 9, 2017
As the Trump administration pursues its pro-business agenda, companies will need to carefully consider the range of policy initiative from tax reform, infrastructure investment, regulatory easing, trade policy, and more. These may impact their business strategies, risk profiles, and operations, and the board has a pivotal role to play in this effort.
KPMG’s Spring Director Roundtable Series Houston sponsored by the KPMG Board Leadership Center and designed for all board members and senior executivee, will explore key considerations and questions shaping boardroom conversations in this new environment, including:
- Which policy initiatives may have the greatest impact (positive or negative) on the business?
- How is management assessing the potential impact of these initiatives on the company’s critical strategy and risk assumptions? On investment and growth plans?
- Does the company have the right level of focus and resources devoted to the effort—and the flexibility to calibrate its strategy and adjust operations quickly?
Given the expectations of investors, employees, and customers who are increasingly calling on business to take a greater role in addressing environmental and social issues (e.g., climate change, sustainability, income inequality, immigration), we will also discuss the board’s role in helping companies address these issues and the implication of the growing volume of related shareholder proposals from the 2017 proxy season.
We hope you can join us and your peers for this timely dialogue at one of our director roundtable locations around the country.
