Matt Fullbrook on boardroom disruption and one minute wisdom

In this episode we speak with Matt Fullbrook, an experienced corporate governance advisor, researcher, and educator with two decades of experience. Matt shares with us how he was appointed at a very young age to lead the Rotman School of Management’s corporate governance centre. We talk about his journey of over 200 board effectiveness engagements and why he rejects ’best practice’. We learn more about Matt's podcast "One Minute Governance" and how it was created to provide inclusive and accessible content on corporate governance.

Matt also is a bass player in the funk band: KC Roberts and The Life Revolution. We play one of his songs at the end of the episode. It’s a great sound!
