Course description

Essential Corporate Governance

An essential overview of the role of boards in delivering good corporate governance, the regulatory landscape, and key responsibilities for directors.

Good governance drives better decision making, unlocks business growth, reduces risk, and ensures organisations are fit for the future. Bad governance increases the risk of reputational damage, financial losses, or corporate failure.

This course leads on from our ‘Introduction to Corporate Governance’ training course and looks in more detail at the role of boards in delivering good governance, the UK regulatory landscape and key responsibilities for directors. The programme blends detailed technical information with practical guidance on compliance and best practice. A basic understanding of boards and corporate governance is assumed.
