COMPANY SECRETARY AND BOARD EVALUATION EXCELLENCEDate: 27th to 29th September 2017, South Africa


A three-day masterclass aimed at helping you build the effectiveness of your Board and enhancing the role the Company Secretary can play to achieve that greater effectiveness. You’ll leave the course with some practical ideas that you can take back to your own Boards, plus an understanding of how Company Secretaries can really add value to organisations, and for those in the role, some ideas for building your profile. You’ll be asked to share your own views, contribute your experiences and join in discussions about best practise in your jurisdiction.
