WGCC Collaborates with Korn Ferry to Gain Insights on the Pivotal Role of General Counsel in Canada

January 31, 2020

WGCC is thrilled to collaborate with Korn Ferry to gain insights on the pivotal role of General Counsel (GC) in Canada. 

In 2017, Korn Ferry prepared a presentation that reflected data on the competencies, traits, drivers and experiences of ‘best-in-class’ GCs.  WGCC has commissioned a new research report to update the 2017 data; the results of which will be used to identify the key competencies, traits, drivers and experiences that are requisites for GCs to succeed and/or be recruited.

The results of this ground-breaking research identifying the key competencies, traits, drivers and experiences of GCs will be used to frame WGCC’s future strategic direction and programming. It is anticipated that immeasurable benefits will accrue from this collaboration to both current and aspiring GCs, as well as Boards and Senior Executives/Executive Teams.
