Board Shorts Podcast: The Financial Risks of Being on a Board | Ep. 20

She also wanted to know what the risks are of being sued, and if it’s worth taking out insurance to cover the risks of being on a board?

Please note: all information in this – and other episodes of the Board Shorts Podcast – is general in nature. You should seek advice from appropriately qualified specialists to address your specific circumstance.
