Dr. Pogue attends the National Association of Corporate Directors Directors in the Digital Age Forum


Phoenix, AZ - June 15, 2012 - Dr. Laura Pogue, CEO of Complete Consulting, Inc., recently attended the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) Spring Forum, held on June 11th and 12th at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City, NY.  This year, the NACD conference focused on the Digital Age and the related, critical issues in Corporate Governance. The event was brimming with more than 200 board directors, c-suite executives, and strategic thinkers.

As an NACD Board Leadership Fellow, Dr. Pogue realizes first-hand the value, knowledge, and insight the NACD continues to provide its members to confidently navigate business challenges. "Mr. Ludwig gave a captivating keynote address, Directorship in the Digital Age, which stressed the leadership challenges that boardrooms currently face and the importance of having the right strategies in place," says Dr. Pogue. Mr. Edward Ludwig is the Becton Dickinson Board Chairman and an Aetna Director.

Presentations focused on pressures directors face, generated by social media, technology, transparency, executive compensation, board diversity, audits, and shareholder outreach, and the importance of developing strategy. As a member of the Phoenix Chapter of the NACD, Dr. Pogue found the, When Catastrophe Strikes presentation, given by Richard Levick, President & CEO of Levick Strategic Communications, to be especially on-point, saying, "Mr. Levick's presentation confirmed that social media is not just social media, it is media and needs to be part of the overall corporate governance strategy."

This year's focus on the Digital Age was particularly important to Dr. Pogue as she continues to deepen her knowledge and understanding of corporate governance issues, combined with importance of being technologically savvy as a leader within the post-secondary and aviation education industries. "Staying progressive in board governance issues and integrating the latest technology are essential for a committed board director, and were key points visited at the conference," says Dr. Pogue.
