Following the credit crunch, the near collapse of global financial markets and a spate of frauds and corporate scandals, governments, investors, regulators and other stakeholders are placing greater emphasis on corporate governance. They expect organisations to have effective boards and to comply with the fundamental principles of good international corporate governance practice. All directors and senior managers in a business should therefore have a good grasp of corporate governance principles.
- But how can businesses ensure that their governance framework is legally compliant, fit for purpose and working effectively?
- How can they know that they have the right people and processes in place for effective board working?
- How can they be sure that audit, assurance and risk management arrangements are appropriate and adequate?
- How much information on governance arrangements should be reported externally to satisfy stakeholders?
During this intensive and interactive two-day seminar you will learn, using practical examples and case studies, how to establish an effective, efficient and value-adding corporate governance framework.
Day 1 will introduce attendees to the core principles and components of corporate governance, its growing importance to governments, investors, regulators and other stakeholders and the respective roles and responsibilities of the key players.
Day 2 will examine the practical steps that need to be taken to develop an effective governance infrastructure and will explore how to evaluate overall governance effectiveness and continuously improve governance processes in line with international best practice.
During the seminar attendees will have the opportunity to develop a practical action plan tailored to their own organisation. Whether you are an executive or non-executive director, chair or member of an audit committee, head of internal audit or risk or a senior executive this course will demonstrate how you personally can contribute to and enhance corporate governance in your organisation.
