The New Age of Technical Board Directors, with Elliot Breuer
Understanding the trends in boardroom leadership
In this new age of board directors, there is a lot to learn. Many adjustments in the way we lead in the boardroom are a direct result of changes we’ve seen over the past decade in different industry trends. For example, the technical skill and knowledge that are incredibly sought-after in today’s boardroom were not as highly demanded 10-20 years ago.
Today we welcome Elliot Breuer to the podcast. Elliot founded Veracross- a Computer Software company- where he learned the importance of technical skills in the boardroom. Elliot helps distinguish what differences boards have begun to encounter and how he’s leveraged his technical background in the boardroom.
In today’s episode, Elliot provides key insights from his first-hand experience building and running Veracross. He also gives us knowledge as to why he’s found success in the boardroom and how we can find similar success. We discuss all of these topics and more on this episode of Boardroom Bound.
