Event Details


All members of Boards of Directors need to follow a series of statutory law, common law and regulatory requirements designed to meet corporate governance standards and expectations of stakeholders – including regulators and the wider public. This includes duties to the corporation, the avoidance of conflict of interest, and the need to display high levels of skill, care and diligence when acting in good faith to promote the success of the company.


Serving on a Board of Directors exposes individual members to joint and individual legal liabilities, not to mention reputational risk. As a result, anybody currently or potentially serving on – or supporting or reporting to – a Board of Directors needs to become familiar with the legal and regulatory context within which they do so.


By joining this seminar all pertinent questions will be answered, and participants will also have the chance to mingle and discuss with other Directors in the sector.



Training Objectives


By attending this programme participants will attain vital knowledge for their roles through:


  • Introducing the legal and regulatory context within which a Board of Directors functions
  • Understanding the expectations on the Board of Directors resulting for the legal and regulatory context
  • Reviewing select guidelines further describing the legal and regulatory requirements
  • Reference to benchmark governance code for illustration of practical implications
