Description - Tougher Boards for Tougher Times by William A. Dimma

Praise for Tougher Boards for Tougher Times "Written by one of Canada's leading and most experienced directors, Tougher Boards for Tougher Times is a must-read for all aspiring, current and seasoned directors. This eye-opening book inspires all of us to strive for excellence and integrity in the boardroom in an intelligent, informative and pragmatic way." Beverly Topping, President & CEO, Institute of Corporate Directors and ICD Corporate Governance College "The 'tick the box' requirements of good governance are now well understood and broadly followed. These are the basic foundations for good governance. Dimma makes a real contribution to moving from that base to the new level of governance performance required in today's corporate environment, drawing on practical experience and relevant examples of how governance can be improved." The Honorable Michael H. Wilson, Chairman, UBS Canada, and Chairman, Canadian Coalition for Good Governance "Bill Dimma uses a light touch in bringing to bear all the wisdom of his vast boardroom experience. He shows that it's not just what you do as a director, it is also the way that you do it that matters in the post-Enron boardroom world." Phillip Crawley, Publisher and CEO, The Globe and Mail "If all corporate directors had carried out their responsibilities as capably as Bill Dimma, corporate governance would not be such a controversial issue as it is today. This is a 'must read' for directors as well as our future business leaders--the business students of today. It is an opportunity for all of us to learn from a pro!" Carol Stephenson, Dean, Richard Ivey School of Business, The University of Western Ontario "In the world of corporate governance three things matter most: experience, experience, and experience. Bill Dimma is the voice of experience. His latest book cuts through all the theories and fads in the corporate governance craze and offers truly useful advice." Governor Jim Blanchard, Former Governor of Michigan, Former U.S. Ambassador to Canada, and Corporate Director
