This programme combines the best of our corporate governance subject areas with key elements of the function of the Company Secretary and In-house Legal Department. Poor corporate governance, including weak boards of directors, overbearing Chief Executives, and group-think by external advisers, has over the years contributed to the downfall of many major companies - as was the case in Enron and WorldCom, and more recently in many international financial institutions. During the two weeks of the programme, participants will learn about the mandatory and voluntary checks and balances that should be in place in company structures to reduce the risk of catastrophic governance failure. They will draw lessons from the many examples of good and bad corporate governance practice in private sector and state owned companies. They will learn about new obligations of Corporate Social Responsibility and Strategic Risk Management that frequently sit with those senior individuals responsible for protecting the company’s reputation. Finally, delegates will take away enhanced legal skills in negotiating and structuring contracts and in dispute resolution.

The content of the course on all days was very good. I particularly benefitted from LCTs use of two consultants throughout the week. It was great to have different perspectives and it kept the training fresh and interesting. Furthermore, the consultants were excellent at training being both knowledgeable and clear. Finally, I would like to say that I was impressed with LCT for delivering a personalised service. Everyone knew me by name and were extremely helpful and friendly. I hope to return to LCT in the future.
