Overview

The delivery of best practice corporate governance continues to be a central focus in every board room. The combined pressures of unyielding media scrutiny and the increasing demands of shareholders underline the need for a thorough understanding of corporate governance.

 Why attend?

This two-day workshop uses interactive exercises, group work and case studies to give delegates an in-depth understanding of the current corporate governance framework in the UK.

The recent financial crisis has focused attention on the performance of those at the top of business and corporate governance standards are now in the spotlight more than ever before.

The topics covered in this course include:

  • the impact and implementation of the 2012 changes to the UK Corporate Governance and Stewardship Code

  • the current debate on boardroom remuneration

  • EU and UK proposals for reform of the audit market to enhance competition and independence of the statutory audit process

  • the key board performance improvement drivers of diversity, appraisal and training

  • improvements in financial reporting
