Corporate Governance Workshop - Two Day Training Programme
12-13 November 2015
Training Programme Overview
This two day workshop uses interactive exercises, group work and case studies to give delegates an in-depth understanding of the corporate governance framework in the UK and reviews current governance hot topics including the management of principal risks; the effectiveness of the audit process; reporting; diversity; ethical leadership and corporate culture.
The delivery of best practice corporate governance continues to be a central focus in every board room. The combined pressures of unyielding media scrutiny and increasing demands of shareholders underline the need for a thorough understanding of good governance processes and also how to improve performance at the top of business.

- The impact and implementation of the UK Corporate Governance and Stewardship Codes
- Leadership and teamwork around the boardroom table
- The changes around executive remuneration
- The role of audit and the EU proposals for reform of the audit market
- Aspects of boardroom behaviour, including challenge, scrutiny and the impact of diversity following the Davies Report
- Improvements to financial reporting
- The key contribution of poor governance, risk management shortfalls and cultural problems to the failure of large organisations
