What should the Board of Directors of a major public company be doing? How does its function differ from the day-to-day company management? What is the role of a non-executive director-especially where he or she is sitting on the board of many different companies and cannot give full-time attention to any single organisation? How does a company assess the degree of risk it wishes to take in its operations and who makes the final decision? Who is accountable to whom at the top of our biggest companies? And how does any of this fit together when the government has a major shareholding in the company and appoints the chairman and other directors to the board? This ten-day programme on Advanced Corporate Governance will answer these and many other questions. The training course will look at corporate governance from an international perspective, comparing practice and policy in the UK, the US and a variety of other jurisdictions. The programme will be packed with case studies of how corporate governance functions in different sorts of organisations. By the end of the course delegates will be able to answer the questions posed above, and will be able to give direction to their own organisations about the right way to structure and control their companies.
