Course Description

The boardroom sits at the heart of every organization, yet understanding its inner workings and knowing how to get the most out of it can be highly challenging.

In recent years, the topics of boardroom dynamics, risk and strategy have become crucial to the understanding of company law, corporate governance and compliance. They are areas that all those who work on and around boards should be comfortable with. Yet the inner workings and know-how of these complex subjects can be challenging and overwhelming

This online continuing education course will provide participants with a look behind the boardroom doors to evaluate the effectiveness of corporate governance systems.  Today’s corporate directors, and the executive teams with whom they work, are being challenged by the owners of the organization more so than ever to not only protect their interests, but also enhance corporate performance.   

As boards already struggle to balance the growing list of regulatory compliance requirements, we are going to identify and explore three key board leadership roles that differentiate good boards from great ones.   

We will look in this online CPE webinar at ways the Board can make valuable contributions to value creation and long-term viability by achieving what we will describe during the course as Governance Advantage.

Key topics covered in this online CPE webinar:

  • How do boards get constituted?
  • What are the primary areas of board business?
  • What is the real substance of board work?
  • What are the responsibilities of the corporate director?
  • How board make decisions?
  • Who are the pillars of governance advantage?
