Traditionally a convergence of the legal and business community, the NBA-SBL conferences present an opportunity for lawyers, policy makers, regulators and investors to engage, discuss, network and unwind in a convivial atmosphere. This year would be no different as the conference would have key stakeholders from the digital ecosystem fairly represented at the conference.
At the end of the last e-conference, panellists and delegates agreed that businesses need to review their corporate governance policies, rules, and regulations in the context of COVID-19 and other potential disruptions; that the “new norm” requires the enthusiastic embrace of technology to promptly and efficiently deliver qualitative services and solutions for clients and other stakeholders
