Governance for Directors

In this age of increasing scrutiny, board members and company managers must be aware of their duties. They must understand how to best manage their work practices for accountability purposes. This training course looks at the specific duties that subsidiaries and unlisted companies have. Corporate Governance includes comprehensive analysis of the source of corporate governance requirements, the duties owed by board members, directors, senior and middle management, and to whom those duties are owed.

The course also examines the consequences of breaches of these duties. We guide you through the current landscape services and provide useful tips and case studies on some of the occurring trends and pitfall.
