Consensus Point is excited to announce Linda Rebrovick, our CEO and Chair, HealthStream Board Governance Committee, visited the NYSE as a guest on Corporate Board Member’s “This Week in the Boardroom“. TK Kerstetter, President, Corporate Board Member (CBM), a NYSE Euronext company, interviewed Linda on her perspectives of successful Board Governance. Other impressive and notable industry leaders who have also been guests on this premiere show with TK include Denise Morrison, President & CEO, Campbell Soup Co., Philip Lochner, Former SEC Commissioner & Current Director, and Duncan Niederauer, CEO, NYSE Euronext, among others.
Linda’s experience serving as a Director on several public boards, including HealthStream and Pinnacle Financial Partners, KPMG LLP, uniquely qualifies her to speak on this important topic. In the interview, Linda speaks briefly but passionately about her work at Consensus Point (which we love!) and discusses valuable ideas to identify qualified board candidates with diversity of thought and experience.
The diversity of board members is important—not just diversity of background and expertise—but also diversity of thought and experience that come from having a board that brings diversity of gender and race. There are many qualified candidates so the nominating committee must find and recommend the outstanding directors who meet the skills needs, bring diversity of thought, and fit within the board and company culture. For example, Linda specifically recommends the following organizations to provide qualified women candidates: Inter Organization Network (ION), Womens Busines Leaders in US Healthcare (WBL), and Women’s Corporate Directors (WCD).
At Consensus Point, we are very proud of Linda’s recent honors recognizing her efforts in our business, community and boards. Linda has been named to the Academy for Women of Achievement, YWCA; Most Powerful Women, the Nashville Post; and Power Leaders in Technology, Nashville Business Journal. And that’s just in 2011! Her track record of leadership, sound management, and good governance have doubtless added value to every board on which she’s served. We are fortunate to work with her every day to spread the word about prediction markets and are proud that her talents can now be shared with a larger audience.
