COMPANY SECRETARY & THE BOARD

DATE:                 July 22, 2021

 

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

The pace of change in the world of business has redefined the roles of many officeholders, including the Company Secretary. Unlike in the past when the office was perceived as clerical or merely secretarial, the Company Secretary's role is widely acknowledged today as very strategic to the achievement of Boards' objectives.

 

The Company Secretary is not only responsible for the effective and efficient administration of the Board, he/she also ensures that Board decisions are dutifully implemented. The company secretariat also ensures organisational compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements. In turn, the Board depends on the Company Secretary for guidance and advice on matters of corporate governance, as well as duties required of a director. In the light of this, it takes a competent Company Secretary who constantly hones his/her skills to be able to discharge the high quality services that are demanded of the office holders these days.

 

This programme is specially designed to keep the delegates up-to-date on their roles and responsibilities in the rapidly changing business landscape.
