What Commonalities Exist Among all Boards, with Coco Brown

May 14, 2020 | Boardroom Bound

Learning what all boardrooms need

About this episode

Not all boards are created equal, however, all boards share some of the same necessities in order to operate effectively and achieve their mission. It can be difficult to identify these similarities, especially as a new director with little experience. To solve this problem and learn more about different boards and how they’re all (to some extent) similar we welcome Coco Brown to the show.

Coco is bringing the golf course to the cloud, enabling executive women to thrive in the business world through simulating the realms they wish to reach, and providing them with the agency to get there. Her platform today, Athena Alliance, is informed by her 27 years in the world of Silicon Valley tech, her experiences as a female entrepreneur and CEO, and her deep appreciation for human connection as the biggest catalyst to professional advancement.

In today’s episode, Coco helps us uncover what all boards need. She shares her 27 years of experience with us to share knowledge and lessons she’s learned along the way that are invaluable to us as aspiring directors.  We discuss all of these topics and more on this episode of Boardroom Bound.
