About the workshop

Corporate governance is rapidly gaining the profile and prominence it deserves.  Corporate governance is about how an organisation acts, agrees its strategic framework (vision, mission and values) and ensures that it meets its objectives.  Effective decision making and performance management are key elements of corporate governance and form a substantial part of this workshop.  Boards give powerful examples of the way organisations respond to outside influences and internal challenges and the structures, processes and behaviours underpinning this are critical.  The role of independent board members is crucial in this.  High standards of corporate governance and effective Board leadership and high standards of probity are vital to good corporate governance.  The workshop is aimed at people operating at or around Board level.  It is highly interactive and will feature an appropriate visit and case studies looking at good and bad examples of Boards in practice.
