This week's speaker: Jason Robinson
Join us this week for a presentation from Jason Robinson, Financial advisor with Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management.
Jason will be discussing his experience with modernizing boards. During his 2 year time in the Chair role for Junior Achievement, he encouraged the board to look at all aspects of the organization through a different lens. He had them analyze if they are being as efficient as possible. He will discuss principles that fit within this fast pace and quick to disconnect world. He will share specific examples of relooking at how a board is run while never forgetting the mission of the organization.
