Course Overview

Are you minding your business? Have you really positioned it for long-term profitability? Many believe that Corporate Governance is a set of rules for listed, regulated and large multinational companies but this is missing a trick. This course will provide you with an understanding of the true meaning of corporate governance, it’s scope, significant benefits and consequences of not getting it right.

There is no one size fits all when it comes to corporate governance – this seminar will equip you with the tools, frameworks and resources to re-evaluate corporate governance in your business, identify the gaps and make changes for its long term health.
