High potential professionals, executives or managers preparing for their first board appointment or mandate will be required to recognise and understand the responsibilities and value of effective directors. Being a board member is a very different role from being a senior executive and brings with it added complexity and unique responsibilities which are different from other management and operational roles. To successfully carry out a board mandate, directors must have a general overview of a company’s operational activities and corporate governance, including an understanding of its strategic objectives and exposure to risk. This online training programme is therefore designed to help prepare you to effectively function in this new role.
Participants of this workshop will benefit from an appreciation of the purpose for corporate governance and the scope of a board’s responsibilities, a clear understanding of the duties and responsibilities that directors are required to fulfil and insights into strategies that can facilitate director effectiveness;
Participants will gain an appreciation of the difference between management and governance and insights on topical issues such as board diversity, anti-harassment, cyber security and other social and environmental issues facing boards today.
