Good corporate governance is increasingly important for organisations, as compliance and performance towards success and sustainability become prioritised together with the imperative for fair and equitable treatment of stakeholders.
This course takes delegates beyond meeting structural and process requirements, exploring how to achieve effective governance performance within a conducive culture. It is forward facing and explores how delegates can deliver good governance in the new norms established during-and-post the Coronavirus pandemic. Executives and managers will understand their stewardship responsibilities and how to discharge these in line with corporate governance principles and recognised good practice, as well as what it takes to be a responsible leader.
Delegates will explore the components of a fit-for-purpose governance framework and how this helps mitigate risk and add value, bolster reputation and create a climate of stakeholder trust that supports effective, well-informed decision making.
