Making Independent Board Leadership Work for the Long Term: Yale Governance Forum 2011 Concluding Remarks

Elise Walton

This session was the last for me at the fabulous Yale Governance Forum 2011. I had to leave this session early, missed the last one, missed the Rising Stars event and all those other sessions during the breakout.

The session was held under Chatham house rule, so no citing people or their organization when discussing what they said. Elise Walton moderated a panel that included Geoff Beattie, Thomas Glocer and Lynn Stout.

With two panelists from Thomson Reuters, that company was central to much of the discussion and I think that gives me a little more flexibility under the Chatham house rule, since readers can’t tell where comments came from if I Continue Reading →

What is Corporate Governance For? Yale Governance Forum

Stephen Davis

The second session of the second day of the Yale Governance Forum 2011 was held under Chatham House Rule. Panelists were announced in advance, so that is no secret, but under the rule those reporting must not attribute what was said to specific individuals on the panel or in the audience. Stephen Davis was the moderator. Kerstin Jorna, Bernadette Kelly and Gregory Lau were panelists.

What you’re getting here is largely my take-away, complete with all my own personal bias, rather than an accurate reflection of what actually was said.

Who is corporate governance meant to serve? We all know it is not a national affair but is Continue Reading →

Breaking the Hold on Rating Agencies

Into the second day of the Yale Governance Forum 2011 and I began to relax among friends, not being quite as conscientious about taking notes but here are a few tidbits from an interesting discussion between Kurt Schacht and Jules Kroll.

 

Jules Kroll

Schacht introduced Kroll by noting that everyone has taken aim at the credit rating agencies. Questions were raised about internal controls, professional standards for analysts, failure to disclose how they arrive at ratings, “Chinese walls” that failed to hold. Yet, business seems to be back to usual. The issuer pays model is still in question.

Kroll made a name and a Continue Reading →

Governance in the Cloud

Fay Feeney

The fourth session of the Yale Governance Forum 2011 was was a breakout. All four sessions looked great. I choose the one on social networking held under Chatham House Rule. Under the rule those reporting must not attribute what was said to specific individuals on the panel or in the audience. This discussion was especially interactive, with a great deal of participation from the small audience, as well as the panel. And, just to mix it up, I also added my own thoughts and commentary to these notes.

The panel, moderated by Fay Feeney, started with a YouTube video from Socialnomics on the Social Media Revolution. The message was clear. Social media represents a fundamental shift in how we communicate. They will find you. Will you shape Continue Reading →

Corporate Governance Challenges

This was the third session of the Yale Governance Forum 2011, one that I’ve already noted was the best yet of the several I’ve attended. Like the first session, the third was held under Chatham House Rule. There’s no secret as to who the panelists were, but under the rule those reporting must not attribute what was said to specific individuals on the panel or in the audience.

With this group, I found that difficult, since discussions of specific countries are readily (if sometimes mistakenly) attributable to panelists from that country. The Continue Reading →

Can Investors Behave Long Term?

The second session, Can Investors Behave Long Term?, of the Yale Governance Forum 2011 was held “on the record.” In some respects, that makes it even more difficult to report. I’m not a quick note taker, so would welcome comments from any who attended the forum, especially panelists, concerning what transpired.

Marco Becht

Keith Ambachtsheer

As I recall, Keith Ambachtsheer, author of Pension Revolution: A Solution to the Pensions Crisis, started us out after a brief introduction from Marco Becht, who served as the moderator. Ambachtsheer noted that all shareonwers are not the same. The wealthy, insurance industry, pensions, and others should be contrast with “guns for hire” who seem to need to be active. There is growing realization by many investors, such as  Keith Johnson Continue Reading →

What is Short Term? A Conversation Retesting Assumptions

 

Ira Millstein

 

 

 

The first session of the Yale Governance Forum 2011 was held under Chatham House Rule. Panelists were announced in advance, so that is no secret, but under the rule those reporting must not attribute what was said to specific individuals on the panel or in the audience. This was a discussion where, often, members of the audience were as assertive as those on the panel.

Be forewarned, what you’re getting here is largely my take-away, complete with all my Continue Reading →
