Corporate Governance and Director Duties Excellence 2019

12 – 15 Nov 2019



Course Delivery

Public companies and their directors and officers face increasing responsibilities, and even increased the risk of liability. They are also under intense scrutiny and in at least some cases significant pressure from investors and regulators. Changing investor expectations and increased investor willingness to seek or force change, through activist campaigns and other methods, have changed the environment in which directors and officers and their advisers operate. These developments have been complicated by significant legal and regulatory changes. Corporate governance provides the framework within which directors and officers must operate in fulfilling their responsibilities. In-house and outside advisers are called on both to provide day-to-day counseling and to address crisis situations in the corporate governance context.

This 4 Day Masterclass will focus on the 2019 trends and good practices in Good Corporate Governance and Role of the Management. The 4-Day masterclass aimed to provide you with tips and tools to firmly cement yourself as strategic advisor and corporate governance champion of your organisation. The three-day workshop will encourage discussions and interactions between delegates and there will be case studies and group work as part of the program.
