A Complimentary Invitation

What makes a successful GC today?
General Counsels Forum
For GCs, by GCs
May 11, 2023, 9 am to 7 pm ET
Debevoise & Plimpton, 66 Hudson Boulevard, New York City

We are reinventing our roles as GCs at unprecedented speed. Most of all, we are reinventing our roles as leaders: of our functions, on the Executive Team, with the CEO, with the Board, and with a complex array of external interests and organizations. How do we build our bandwidth to master the complexity? What talent do we need around us, to succeed? What should be our focus, when there is far too much to focus on? These and related topics will be at the center of the forum.

Agenda topics will include: 

  1. The GC role is transforming and expanding at a rapid pace. What’s our job today - and where is it going, for tomorrow?

  2. The business and societal environments for our organizations are a maze of contradictory forces. How should the GC be navigating them for the enterprise?

  3. What qualities do we need in our successors - And how do we develop them?

  4. Working with the Board: What are the Dos and Don'ts for this critical relationship?

  5. We know the benefits of ESG - How do we manage the risks?

  6. Public policy positions: GC as leader, or lighting rod?

  7. Hybrid work is here to stay. How do we lead in this challenging environment?
