Good Corporate Governance is about helping to prevent corporate scandals, fraud, and potential civil and criminal liability in the firm or organization. Good Corporate Governance is also about good business, and what’s good for the business. A good corporate governance image enhances the firm’s reputation and makes it much more attractive to its investors, its suppliers and its customers.

This course provides participants with an overview of the regulation, frameworks and principles behind good corporate governance policy and practice. The aim is to provide delegates with an understanding of core governance debates and issues, practical advice on compliance and familiarity with accepted best practice.

In the last decade corporate governance has become established as an area of increasing academic, political and commercial debate. It has now become essential for any middle or senior manager to have an understanding of the key aspects of effective corporate governance.

This course is aimed at educating employees on the laws, regulations and company policies that apply to their day-to-day job responsibilities. The course is intended to provide the participants with the ability to achieve the key compliance goals of:

  • Avoiding and detecting violations by employees that could lead to legal liability for the organization;
  • creating a more hospitable and respectful workplace; and
  • laying the groundwork for a partial or complete defense in the event that employee wrongdoing occurs.

The course is suitable for all staff in management & supervisory positions, irrespective of their specific job responsibilities.

Our aim is to help your firm achieve and maintain ongoing compliance – enabling you to concentrate on growing your business.

Course Objectives:

The aim of this program is to provide participants with:

  • An overview of current thinking and developments in the field of corporate governance.

  • To understand the interrelationship between management, finance, law and ethics in the field of corporate governance.
