With this *In-house* workshop your corporate team will understand their full range of responsibility and how to minimise the company’s liabilities and strengthen its stability.
The duties and needs of the company secretary continue to grow. The seriousness of the role makes it essential to keep up-to-date with changes and new developments and to understand their implications across a wide range of business activities. Legislation is increasing to criminalise certain activities in companies. There are a large number of offences in company law, which can lead to company directors being fined along with the company secretary; in serious cases it can lead to a custodial sentence. Individual peril is only one aspect, business survival itself is another.
A company’s reputation is one of its most prized possessions in pursuit of sustained growth, where reputational risk can make or break a company. It is essential that this asset is not undermined by breaches of the law or failure to follow best practice. The company secretary must ensure that legislation is not infringed, that regulations are adhered to, that compliance is full and up-to-date at all times and that areas of potential risks are identified and dealt with. This is all in addition to running a smoothly operating structure that looks after its directors, staff, shareholders and investors.
This intensive and practical In-house programme will deliver the best professional guidance and advice on how to achieve the right level of compliance and risk management indispensable to a company aiming to be amongst the top performers in its class.
