In this edition:

  • Confronting Australia’s looming productivity crisis: There are eight key government agenda areas that could help us resolve our looming productivity crisis - and board members need to both buy in and prepare for change.
  • Leading the way to a customer-centric future: With new technology, regulatory policies, customer behaviour and globalisation all impacting businesses, boards have an opportunity to guide transformation, ensuring customer value is at the core.
  • Building a great board: Aligning boardroom talent with the company’s strategy is a key driver of many boards’ increasing focus on board composition and succession planning today.
  • Opening up to corporate debt financing alternatives: Looking beyond traditional debt financing avenues.
  • A new way forward: Upcoming enhancements to auditor reporting in Australia is set to provide greater transparency. This marks a good time for boards to assess how audit committees, management and investors can prepare for the changes.
  • The Directors’ Toolkit: The toolkit provides company directors with a unique experience where they can navigate through questions they should ask, and a list of ‘red flags’ that may impact company performance.
