Corporate Governance Workshops

In the last decade alone, we have all witnessed the unexpected colapses of many major organisations, the near clapse of the international banking system, excessive public spending on the scale that has almost bankrupt leading soveriegn nations and numerous examples of bribery, corruption and expense abuse that we should only expect from seasoned criminals.

Suprisingly most of the organisations and governments involved also spent heavily on corporate governance processes that appear to have been used to support their bad decision making, employing expensive staff, audit firms, consultants, lawers, economists and security advisors.  Even more suprisingly many of the same executives and advisors continue to be employed at the highest levels.

Clearly, traditional governance, risk management and control processes alone have been proved to be ineffective, easily bypassed by those seeking finacial benefit from “streaching or breaching ” ethical, professional and defined codes of conduct.

These workshops will help you reassess whether your organisations
governance processes and systems are comprehensive and cost effective :

>   What shareholders and investors should expect from management and auditors
>   The scope of corporate governance policies and procedures.
>   Employment contracts, objectives, bonouses and remuneration.
>   Minimising the risk of bribery and corruption.
>   Managing potential conflicts of interest.
>   Minimising corporate crime including fraud, theft and misrepresentation
>   Protecting electronically held information
>   Business and financial controls.
>   Managing auditors, bankers, consultants and advisors.
>   The bribery act.

Who will benefit

These workshops are aimed at aspiring executives, non executives and professionals resonsible for managing governance processes . It is applicable to both the private and public sector.

What you can gain
