Helle Bank Jorgensen is the CEO of Competent Boards, which offers the much praised global online ESG Competent Boards Certificate and Designation Program, with a faculty of over 150 renowned international board members, executives and experts. Launched in Davos in 2019, Competent Boards aims to enable board members and senior management to make better decisions, to “put your broad vision, your complex aim, your courageous idea into action.”

Helle has a 30-year track record in turning ESG risks into sustainable and profitable business opportunities and works with many Fortune 500 companies. She serves on numerous influential boards, such as the World Economic Forum Expert Network for Corporate Governance, Leadership, and Emerging Multinationals. Recently, she was awarded the Global Impact Award, and was named as one of “5 people in ESG to look out for”. Her book, "Stewards of the Future: A Guide for Competent Boards”, is an Amazon bestseller.

This conversation investigates a range of the top strategic issues affecting corporations today, including ESGs and SDGs, climate and human rights, supply chains, anti-corruption, dreams and visions, geopolitics and technology.

Helle is asking what responsible leaders should be constantly asking themselves:

🎤 Do you know your business? 🎤 Do you know what kills your company? 🎤 Do you know how to handle the current 'tsunami of crises' and serve all your stakeholders like a “steward of the future”? 🎤 Do you know how to create an efficient ecosystem? 🎤 Do you think like an activist? 🎤 Are you doing all you can to get all the information you need to move your company forward in the best possible way? 🎤 Do you know your customer's customer? And more.
