2020 dates for this course are available to book here.

This programme is designed for current and future executive and non-executive (independent) Board Members and for senior executives. It will equip them to effectively discharge their individual and collective governance roles, responsibilities and accountabilities, and lead the organisation to success and sustainability through governance excellence. Invaluable and insightful for board members, board committee members and senior (C Suite) executives.

Corporate Governance is not the same as management and demands different approaches, competencies and styles. It’s the way organisations are directed and controlled. It is the toolkit for the processes and the oversight which drives the highest standards of leadership, accountability and behaviour. Strong governance is a key enabler for Boards and organisations to make well informed and appropriate decisions, to implement them effectively, and achieve critical stakeholder outcomes by acting appropriately and fairly. New or updated corporate governance laws, regulations and directives are frequently released.

Good corporate governance is of increasing importance globally. Its purpose is to help build the trust, transparency and accountability necessary for fostering long-term investment, financial stability and business integrity, thereby supporting stronger growth and more inclusive societies. It brings a conducive corporate culture which proactively manages risks, fosters high performance and optimally achieves corporate compliance and control to enhance organisational value.

This course outlines recognised global good practice corporate governance standards and expectations. It will help senior leaders to recognise the nature and components of effective integrated frameworks for good corporate governance. It will assist delegates to implement the structural, process, behavioural, compliance, risk and performance imperatives needed within a robust accountability framework.
