Attend this practical Corporate Governance Course to learn about the best standards and practices for creating and protecting value of your organisation.

Governance is now acknowledged as a core business function. Corporate governance is not simply about compliance - whether with the law, regulation or guidance. Compliance provides a company with its 'licence to operate', but high-quality systems of governance lead to better-run companies which create, grow and protect value for all their stakeholders.

The never-ending list of corporate scandals and crises has emphasised the need for boards and directors to understand what governance good practices look like and to ensure that they have sound governance systems in place. Using case studies and drawing on the delegates' own experience, the strategic corporate governance course will take participants through the process of building a high-quality governance framework.

By attending the Programme delegates will be able to assess the strength of their own organisations' governance, and identify where change and improvement is needed for their company to become more effective in creating value, resilient in times of market turbulence, and sustainable into the longer term.
