A three-day masterclass aimed at helping you build the effectiveness of your Board and enhancing the role the Company Secretary can play to achieve that greater effectiveness. You’ll leave the course with some practical ideas that you can take back to your own Boards, plus an understanding of how Company Secretaries can really add value to organizations, and for those in the role, some ideas for building your profile. You’ll be asked to share your own views, contribute your experiences and join in discussions about best practice in your jurisdiction.

The workshop will investigate the many facets of what being a good company secretary looks like, how he or she can work to improve standards of governance inside the organization and particularly the board, and aspire to the highest levels inside an organization, and achieve his or her ultimate career ambitions.
