What does a board member do and what impact do they have? What are the skills and aptitudes required? This course looks at the role of the board member, whether an executive or a non-executive director, in a UK Listed company.
It considers board structure and practice and looks at the specific duties and liabilities associated with being a director.
It discusses why corporate governance is important and why it should be so much more than a simple box ticking exercise. It sets out the key tasks associated with being a board member as well as the personal attributes and skills needed to carry out the role effectively. Although the course focuses on UK listed companies, the principles are equally applicable to other legal entities on a proportionate basis.
Courses can be completed any time either as a full 16 hour programme or as individual 4 hour courses.
