On The Corporate Director Podcast, we discuss the experiences and ideas behind what’s working in corporate board governance in our digital-tech-fueled world. You’ll hear interviews with corporate leaders who have compelling stories to share, governance researchers with new insights, and conversations with “governance geeks” who are passionate about finding the best ideas out there to help board directors do their work better.
Episodes will feature topics such as: corporate governance, strategy, board culture, risk management, ESG, secure communication, digital transformation through boardroom technology, board meeting management, director recruiting and succession planning, board refreshment, boardroom meeting minutes and other good governance best practices.

Why You Should Listen to The Corporate Director Podcast
It seems like there’s a podcast for everyone these days. No matter what profession you’re in, if you search iTunes odds are you’ll find a podcast geared toward you. But how many podcasts exist that are geared exclusively towards board members?
In the corporate governance space, the bar keeps getting higher. There’s a lack of good content out there helping directors navigate as they go. We’re aiming to change that.
Welcome to The Corporate Director Podcast.
The Modern Board Member — What You Need to Know to Continue Making a Positive Impact
We are so excited to share with you our very first episode of The Corporate Director Podcast. We kicked off this podcast by interviewing two exceptional guests: Brian Stafford, President and CEO of Diligent Corporation and Betsy Atkins, serial entrepreneur, three-time CEO, and corporate governance & growth expert.
This episode is all about modern governance. We’re covering how the role of boards has changed over the past decade and what changes we can expect to see in the future. We know you’re going to love it.
3 Ways Directors Can Gain Laser-Focused Insights
Insights are lifeblood for directors. With today’s increasing flow of rapid data and information, directors want more data and more research, and they need it faster.
This week we show board members how to obtain those insights, which research to follow, and how to enable your board to leverage their individual strengths to ask the right questions.
This episode is hosted by Dottie Schindlinger and Meghan Day, with special guests Laurie Yoler and Annie Kors. Laurie Yoler is on the boards of Church & Dwight, Bose, Zoox, and Noon Home. She is also a founding member of the board of directors for Tesla. Annie Kors is the lead researcher for the Diligent Institute, the governance think tank and research arm for Diligent Corporation.
How Digital Disruption Is Challenging Board Rooms
Digital disruption has impacted nearly every industry. Retail, transportation, and even certain parts of healthcare have been upended, as upstarts have supplanted long-standing companies. Research shows that half of the S&P 500 companies will be replaced over the next 10 years. What does that mean?
There’s no escaping digital disruption. The forecast is pretty clear: Disrupt, or be disrupted. We sat down with John Hinshaw, who’s held senior positions and directorships at various companies (like Sysco, Hewlett-Packard, & Verizon Wireless) to discuss how boards today are tackling technological unrest. John’s combined experience as a technology executive and as a director gives him a unique insight.
John Hinshaw is currently on the boards of Sysco, BNY Mellon, Docusign and Illumio.
