Enhance your board leadership skills

Navigating boardroom dynamics and clearly understanding the role each board member plays is vital to the success and effectiveness of a board.

This programme has arisen out of the recognition that there is a critical need in South Africa to enhance the opportunities for learning and development of directors and company secretaries in private and public companies as well as state-owned organisations.  It exposes participants to the latest thinking onboard leadership while equipping participants with the necessary procedural and process skills in the increasingly difficult area of boardroom interaction, leadership and decision making. 

The programme also focuses on key boardroom acumen and includes critical topics such as corporate governance and ethics in business, risk management and the impact of global regulatory standards on company results.
