While President Trump may be shunning attending "traditional events" in Washington a new standing agenda item for every board should be Trump. 

The new administrations approach to immigration,  to trade, to tax, to energy, to defence, to education, all are relevant to corporate boards. Any board that doesn't have as an agenda item Trump is remiss.

We are up for the biggest shakeup since the New Deal in the 30s. Regulatory reform is coming. Rising interest rates and a strong dollar are inevitable. The America First proposals mean all overseas operations and investments need reviewing as do tax corporate structures, including whether cash can now be efficiently repatriated.

Never in the last 40 years has there been such a need for boardrooms to be educated as to what the change in American governmental business policies mean for multinational groups as there has been post the Trump victory in November.
