3 May 10, 2017 Welcome to WCD s Global Institute. We hope that the panels will provide food for thought as you develop board agendas for the remainder of We are all aware that rising sentiments of protectionism and nationalist agendas have been widely reported along with the ongoing technology disruptions and demographic changes around the world. A 2017 KPMG Infrastructure report indicated that while the west is actively seeking protectionist policies, in emerging markets, globalization continues to be seen as the key to development, growth and prosperity. New trade agreements are being penned, regional bodies are being formed and protectionist measures are being removed. Throughout the Global Institute, we will discuss how these new geopolitical trends will impact the way boards think about strategic plans and growth opportunities, as well as explore key questions boards should be asking in order to take advantage of opportunities through the following panels: International M&A Exploring new industries and business models Identifying future markets Infrastructure: How to manage liquid assets - water We hope that we can continue our tradition of robust dialogue at these events ask questions, network with your peers, and identify ways to become an even stronger director. Enjoy the Institute! Sincerely, Kapila Anand Director, Extended Stay America, Lead Director, WCD Foundation, Retired Partner, KPMG LLP Nancy Calderon Director, KPMG s Global Delivery Center, Ltd, India Director, WCD Foundation, Global Lead Partner, KPMG LLP 3

4 WomenCorporateDirectors Education and Development Foundation, Inc. (the WCD Foundation) is pleased to welcome the most powerful women from around the world corporate, large privately-held company, and family company directors for WCD s Global Institute. This will be a unique gathering of business leaders in the region to crossroads of the world economy. Directors must not only develop a company s global strategy, but also be vigilant watchdogs who understand the hidden challenges of working around the world. WCD s Global Institute will provide access to a community of like-minded women directors where we can share knowledge and experiences. The connections will enable members to build relationships and provide references for each other. Directors will learn how to be more effective and influential. The Global Institute will explore compelling trends on the minds of directors as well as a call to action and blueprint to help break down the structural, cultural and strategic obstacles to create diverse boards. Excellence in board performance and board diversity are business and governance imperatives, and boards need the right men and women leaders multigenerational, multi-national, multi-cultural, and multi-regional. As we operate in an increasingly deglobalized world, it becomes imperative that companies approach business with cross-cultural understanding in order to face shifting global trends with the knowledge necessary to turn challenges into opportunities. The world is at an economic crossroad. We need to develop directors who not only have the courage to face the realities of the world and the companies on whose boards they serve, but also the audacity and skill to reimagine and rebuild both. We need more courage, candor, inclusion and cohesion in the boardroom. WCD is thrilled to welcome you to New York. We would like to thank KPMG, WCD s Global Sponsor, for once again being the Lead Sponsor of the Global Institute and for inspiring us. Cheers, WCD Susan S. Stautberg, Chairman and CEO
