According to the Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland:

“Corporate Governance refers to the way in which companies are governed and to what purpose. It identifies who has power and accountability, and who makes decisions”

The responsibilities of an organisation’s board therefore include – setting the strategic aims, providing effective leadership, supervising management, and reporting to stakeholders on their stewardship.

This webinar covered practical aspects, such as:

• What good corporate governance looks like

• Board composition and behaviours

• Duties and responsibilities of directors and key board reporting

• Tips on the importance of doing your own due diligence

• What qualities and skills recruiters, boards and head-hunters are looking for in candidates

• Why ESG and DSI are important to boards
