      Joanne Wilson: Keep an Open Seat for an Open Mind

      Gary Schall: Board Directors Should Be Like Top Athletes – Balanced and Agile

      GUEST MENTOR Gary Schall, counsel for corporate practice group, WilmerHale: Balance and agility are terms often used to describe top athletes – as in the controlled and quick movements of a star tennis player, the steady grace of an Olympic gymnast or the swift force of a champion wrestler.
