Last week’s lecture wrapped up the exciting 2011 season of Entrepreneurship 101.
Having played a significant role in many of Canada’s technology companies, lecturer David Pasieka brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the discussion. He chose a topic that is one of his favourites when lecturing at McMaster University: Board of Directors and other Advisors.
In his presentation, David discussed the important roles played by management, shareholders, boards of directors and advisory boards, and provided real-life examples of governance failures.
Check out David’s slide deck for a list of resources and tips on:
- Directors’ duty
