“Ken Hoganson, Dennis Kessler, M. Jay Heilbrunn, Alice Peterson, Sara Hamilton, Raj Sheth, Kevin Morris, Barry Cain, Gerard Buckley, Deborah Bornstein and I attended the 2016 Private Company Governance Summit in Washington DC. It was the best conference on board governance because the speakers were mostly CEOs and Board Directors of large privately held companies. The more than 300 Attendees were also CEOs and Board Directors. It was an outstanding audience to build connections and relationships while learning from people who are at the top and sharing their journey.” Cindy Burrell, President, Diversity in Boardrooms; Founder and Board Member of the Private Directors Association
