Speaking Engagement

Robert Winner to Speak at HRMAC Future Leaders Program

"Board Dynamics and Governance: The CHRO Role"


Chicago, IL

Robert Winner, partner of Seyfarth's Corporate department, is speaking at the HRMAC Future Leaders Program on May 18, 2017. His panel will discuss "Board Dynamics and Governance: The CHRO Role."

The role of CHRO is becoming increasingly more important to company Boards of Directors. In addition to companies seeking more senior HR Leaders to join their boards, the interactions between the sitting CHRO and board are expanding and expectations are growing. This capstone session will explore several of the topics covered in previous sessions from the view of the board, as well as firsthand insight from Board of Directors on what they believe is required to be fully successful as a CHRO. Participants will be able to ask specific questions of current and former board members about their expectations of the HR function, now and moving forward, in order to be better prepared for this important aspect of the CHRO role. The program will also cover:
  • The broader topic of Board dynamics.
  • The importance of a healthy board and management environment.
  • How to manage obstacles or significant change.
  • Insights of companies that have been acquired, merged with another company or experiences a transformation - and the critical role of the CHRO during those times.
