Board members as “humans in the loop”? Navigating innovation, risk and responsibility in the age of AI. 

Join us on GUBERNA National Member Forum for keynotes and a debate about the impact of AI on corporate governance. 

For years, AI has been described as a General Purpose Technology, similar to steam engines and electricity in the industrial era. However, the recent introduction of OpenAI's ChatGPT (in partnership with Microsoft) and Microsoft's own Bing chat has captured the public's imagination, creating an important challenge for directors to better appreciate the strategic opportunities and recognize the risks and limitations of AI in their board-level decisions. 


What to expect?

Keynotes by two international speakers exploring the strategic opportunities and limitations of AI and why board directors should care.

  • How can boards integrate AI into their organisation’s strategy?
  • How can they harness the possibilities of AI with the best interests of the organisation in mind?
  • Which kind of leaders do they need to successfully roll out a sustainable strategy?
  • Which AI-related risks should directors anticipate and monitor?


A panel discussion: how will AI accelerate the transition of corporate governance.

Discover the risks and opportunities AI represents for your organisation and the responsibilities this may imply for you as a director.

  • How could board duties and responsibilities come under pressure due to a lack of experience and knowledge in this field?
  • How can we fill this gap?
  • Should you take on board AI tech leaders?
  • Should you integrate AI in your board decision-making? 

This event is a must-attend for directors, executives, and professionals who want to stay informed about the impact of AI on corporate governance. Join us for an engaging and informative discussion that will help you navigate the opportunities and risks of this exciting technology. Register now to secure your spot! (Limited seats.)
