Course Overview

In today’s complex and volatile market dynamics, there is growing scrutiny on the role and performance of the Board of Directors. Appointed by the shareholders, the directors are effectively the agents of the company and it is their duty to ensure that the company achieves its strategic objectives, and its assets are safeguarded.

Furthermore, since the enactment of Sarbanes-Oxley, most of the countries have come up with their own Code of Corporate Governance, and the compliance is closely monitored by the Stock Exchange regulators. In most countries, it is now mandatory for Directors to attend a course on Corporate Governance.

All directors, whether incumbent or incoming, must work in unison and at the same time share a special sense of bond and camaraderie. Coming from different backgrounds, they bring valuable experience to the organisation and must learn from each other.

With changing business environment, regulations and compliance issues are evolving. Continuous education of the board ensures that the directors are aware of their fiduciary duties and have the necessary knowledge to fulfil them. Organisations investing in training their directors have a direct bearing on their performance and continual training turns an average board into a high-performance board. What will be covered in Corporate Governance
