It is easy to be overwhelmed by compliance requirements. With the ASX Corporate Governance Guidelines, ASIC on the warpath and the ACCC targeting directors and executives, there’s a real need for corporates to educate their own.
Accordingly, we have put together a series of lectures and workshops that can be specifically adapted to meet your requirements.
In harder economic times, expenditure on compliance training tends to be given a lower priority. This is misconceived, as the cost of a risk management failure is likely to be significant. The potential consequences for directors and senior management are substantial fines and/or jail terms.
Our 2 hour lectures cover the following topics:
Directors’ Inductions – all you need to know about being on a Board
Corporate Governance (basic and advanced levels)
Best Practices for Board Meetings and AGMs
What to do after the IPO – ASX and ASIC requirements
Board Performance & Evaluation
Risk Management & Legal Compliance
Competition & Consumer Law Compliance
We have had very positive feedback from companies who have undertaken these programs. They tell us that they have answered many of the doubts and concerns that directors and executives have had and have enabled them to act with clear consciences and confidence.
