About this episode


While it takes time to develop a better understanding of what is involved in helping govern current operations and help an organization move forward, it is essential in order to better serve all stakeholders. Make no mistake; bringing money alone to the table is no guarantee that boards will work effectively – in fact it often is counter-productive. As Bill Adams and Dan Taylor join us today, they dive into the “3 Ps” for building and leveraging boards.

He has served on 4 NASDAQ boards (chairing two of them), served and chaired several committees, chaired two nonprofit boards and acted as interim CEO in six NASDAQ companies facing reorganization, SEC issues and insider buyouts.


Dan overseas Business Strategy and Operations Effectiveness service offerings. He has over 35 years of corporate experience in P&L management, strategic planning, business process reengineering, and team leadership. Throughout his business careers at American Express, T-Mobile, and Concur, a central theme has been driving excellence in service delivery, operations efficiency, and employee effectiveness. Dan thrives on helping organizations deliver extraordinary results in customer loyalty and profitability by rethinking and reengineering business approaches.
