NACD Board Leadership Conference NACD Chapter System

Incentive Programs in the Age of Rapid Business Change

NACD New England Event Logo
April 26, 2017
Boston, MA



The "new normal" of a rapidly evolving business environment involves both unforeseen and planned-for challenges and opportunities: a company transformation or turn-around, a merger or acquisition, or an external factor such as substantial global currency fluctuations. In many of these circumstances, boards may find they are looking through the rear view mirror when it comes to executive compensation—reacting to the current business condition instead of enacting their carefully planned program to support long-term value creation.  

Please join the NACD New England Chapter and Pearl Meyer for a webinar panel discussion on how many of these changes may impact incentive compensation programs and how to best address any such impact within the context of your company's overall business strategy. Hear from our experienced panelists who have been down the path and learn what to watch for and what works.
