PwC's Boardroom Forum

Overview

Aligned to our purpose of building trust in society and solving important problems, PwC has created an exclusive platform for directors to network and engage in discussion and debate around the complex and varying issues being faced in the modern boardroom.

The challenges facing today’s boards are vast and varied, driven by many factors, including global megatrends and local shifts.

PwC’s Boardroom Forum, under the auspices of PwC’s Business School, was established to turn these challenges into opportunities. The Forum provides a platform for the leading minds in corporate governance and related fields to engage with boards to share their knowledge, experience and expertise – while stimulating discussions on new and emerging topics.

Four people sitting in a boardroom forum meeting

Our mission is to help directors effectively meet the challenges of their critical roles and to comply with evolving expectations and regulation.

The Boardroom Forum provides offerings for the following board committees and roles:

Audit and Risk Committees

The role of the audit and risk committee is becoming even more critical in light of a continuing quest for increased governance and certainty in corporate actions, disruption and reporting.

Audit committee chair round-table

Selected audit committee chairs are invited to join us for focused, small group conversations, maximising the opportunity for networking and substantive dialogue between audit committee chairs, on matters most relevant to this role.

Remuneration committees

Remuneration committees have a responsibility to ensure that they are fully competent in all areas of reward and remuneration, and that they are up to date on local remuneration best practices and global trends.

Non-executive director remuneration masterclasses

Our non-executive director remuneration masterclass sessions allow a focus on the critical issues remuneration committee chairs and members will need to consider when dealing with key remuneration concepts.

As awareness surrounding their responsibilities increases, and the reward environment continues to become more complex to navigate, we see a trend towards requests for more in-depth discussion on reward governance matters, which is even more pronounced with the introduction of King IVTM. These small group masterclass sessions address the fundamentals of relevant governance principles and the latest remuneration developments.

Experienced non-executive directors

Conversational forums, which run twice a year, provide experienced non-executive directors with the opportunity to leverage the practical experiences of other non-executive directors and bring governance issues to life. Like-minded professionals, industry experts and thought leaders come together to discuss and debate current issues, on a platform designed to share insights into significant governance challenges and developments.
