Practising Good Corporate Governance During COVID-19 Pandemic Times
Date: 25th & 26th November 2020
Mode: Online + Live Streaming Session on Zoom
A two-day masterclass to explore how governance practices should evolve to improve resilience in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic experience.
With the major shakeup of business practices and the economic environment, boards have been forced to react to a fast-changing and possibly unanticipated situation in which they have needed to make difficult decisions under new circumstances.
Whatever their past business strategy, the need for resilience is likely to have become a higher priority.
This masterclass will address the challenges being faced by boards and the means of increasing agility and resilience.
Corporate governance is the system by which companies are directed and controlled. Boards of directors are responsible for the governance of their companies; their actions are subject to laws, regulations, reporting, and to the shareholders in general meeting. The pandemic has demonstrated that, although compliance remains important, it is the effectiveness of the board and senior management in developing an agile and resilient business strategy that delivers the long-term interests of shareholders and stakeholders.
This masterclass will cater to those chairmen, directors, company secretaries, and C-suite officers faced with guiding the business through change and building a resilient foundation for the ‘new normal’.
