Course description

Introduction to Corporate Governance

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 training course will equip you with practical grounding in the principles of corporate governance in the UK. It is perfect for anyone seeking to understand how governance works in practice and how to begin applying corporate governance principles in their organisation.

Attendees will learn about key governance guidelines and frameworks in the context of the UK Corporate Governance Code. You will walk away with knowledge of accepted good governance practice in how boards function, the interrelation between corporate governance, value, and ethics, and how shareholders and stakeholders should be engaged in the process of governance.
