Kim wrote “The Ultimate Guide to Board Basics” to capture nuggets of wisdom from experienced and exceptional corporate directors to share with new directors. What makes this content special is the insights are crowdsourced from over 1,000 years of combined practical, public company board service experience.

The Board Basics project was a “community project” during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place period in 2020. It was curated with community generosity and heart. Despite their busy schedules, 16-20 directors gathered weekly to share with, and learn from, each other. Even before the group calls started, various directors gave input on the topics. Kim curated these topics along with other common questions Kim has received over her years of experience.
