Corporate Governance and Risk Management for Board Members

An effective board is crucial to the success of an organisation and it must have the right mix of skills and knowledge to work effectively. A solid corporate governance framework lies at the heart of ensuring trustworthy relations between the organisation and its stakeholders and goes beyond just looking at good compliance practices. Boards have the responsibility to ensure sustainable improvements by providing strategic guidance and oversight regarding management decisions. In today's highly digitalised environment, it is critical that governance and compliance initiatives should be aligned with the company's risk appetite in order to achieve their objectives. The biggest challenge for most companies can be the mismanagement of high impact and rare-risks leading to difficulties in mapping critical business relationships.

With the recently proposed legal amendments to the Code of Corporate Governance concerning the role and scope of responsibility of company directors, there is a greater need for this upcoming 2-day training on ”Corporate Governance and Risk Management for Board Members”. Company directors and board members are now under greater scrutiny with regards to the duties, responsibilities and potential personal liabilities for the companies they control. This training will seek to explore the importance of a more ”practical” form of governance focusing on issues related to transparency, succession planning, digital governance, the role of the board in providing greater strategic input to the overall success of the company. Through well developed case studies and group exercises, this highly interactive workshop aims to provide insights into how an effective board working within a system of best-practice governance can maximise its decision-making capabilities and the organisation's overall effectiveness.
