Better Boards is pleased to present "AI and Your Board – Insights into Responsible Governance" in partnership with Julian Ryan, Partner @ FAL Lawyers.

AI is fast-becoming a part of everyday life, and in a corporate environment which places an ever increasing emphasis on responsible governance, it is critical that directors are aware of AI, its uses and risks.

The goal of this presentation is to arm board members with the information required to make informed strategic decisions regarding AI, including its adoption within their organisations.

This webinar provides board members with:

  • an overview of popular AI tools;
  • examples of how companies have been using AI to transform and innovate their operations (and some examples of when this hasn’t gone to plan);
  • use cases for NFPs (large and small);
  • tips and traps to avoid when implementing AI in organisations.
