As the author of "Smart Board Governance for the AI Revolution," I am thrilled to announce its release on Amazon. This book represents my journey as a seasoned Big 4 consultant and strategic advisor, where I've focused on making fact-based decisions to drive organizations forward. In this transformative era of business, marked by the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), I saw a pressing need to bridge the gap in understanding and oversight of AI at the board level. My book aims to equip board members with the knowledge and tools to navigate this new landscape confidently.


In this book, I explore the profound impact of AI across industries, emphasizing the need for a proactive approach from boards in overseeing AI's ethical and strategic integration. I delve into the economic potential of AI, discussing how it's reshaping industries and corporate operations and the importance of responsible AI development to address risks like bias and job displacement.

One of the key aspects I discuss is the ethical challenges in AI governance. It's crucial for boards to ensure AI aligns with ethical standards, managing risks, and fostering a responsible AI culture. Through various case studies, like AstraZeneca and Siemens AG, I illustrate the complexities of aligning AI governance principles with execution and the transformative power of AI in modernizing operations.

The evolving role of corporate boards in the age of AI is another focus. Boards must adapt to AI's strategic implications, develop AI expertise, and engage stakeholders in decision-making processes. The book also discusses how AI can enhance efficiency and strategic foresight across various board committees, from Audit to ESG.

In the final chapters, I highlight the critical integration of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles with AI in corporate strategy. The book concludes by emphasizing the significant impact of AI advancements on corporate governance and strategy, underscoring the evolving role of boards in this AI-driven business environment.

This book is more than a guide; it's a call to action for board members to embrace a forward-thinking, informed approach to AI governance. It's about understanding AI's benefits and challenges, aligning AI initiatives with company values and strategy, and leveraging the extraordinary power of people and AI together.

I am excited to share these insights and experiences with you and look forward to leading boards into a future marked by responsible, strategic, and transformative leadership in the age of AI.
