Inside The Corporate Boardroom: How and When To Serve
by 2020 Women On Boards
Tuesday, November 12, 2013 @ The Harvard Club

What does it mean to serve on a board? After all, no two boards are alike, with each tailored to the size, industry, type and mission of the company or organization they guide.  So where can you leverage your deep experience to positively shape the future of a company?

Organized by The CFO RoundTable Boston, Boston Women in Finance and The Greater Boston Business Council, this luncheon is one of a series of multiple panels and programs on 11/12/13 to support gender diversity in U.S. Corporate Boardrooms.  The panelists will dive into the diverse working styles and organization of boards, discuss their paths toward board service, and offer advice and lessons learned on what to expect when working on a board.

The cost to attend the luncheon is $75. To learn more or to register, please click here.


Creative Compensation Strategies From Start-Up To Exit
by The CFO RoundTable Boston

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 @  Bentley University 

Effective compensation strategies are one of the key pillars to a competitive and healthy business. Being able to attract key talent, retaining your existing base and continuing to incentivize productivity at all stages of a business lifecycle can influence the growth and footprint of any company.  However, creative compensation strategies change over time, and are influenced by a myriad of internal and external factors. Our panel of experts will review compensation strategies for early-stage and high-growth companies, as well as issues and opportunities specific to companies on an exit path.

CFO RoundTable Boston members can attend this program at no cost. Non-members may attend for $75. To learn more or to register, please click here.
