Overview

This workshop is designed for aspiring and existing directors, and those that have business dealings with China and wish to learn more about the role of the board member in this unique jurisdiction. While effective boards, effective behaviours and best practices apply to most regions, each country has its own nuances in culture and opportunities as well as their own unique listing regulations and associated challenges. Our workshop will provide detailed instructions to help understand the duties and liabilities, the opportunities and challenges, as well as the culture of boards in China. 

Topics included:

  • Corporate Governance and Legal Liabilities of a Board Director 
    • Board and board meeting structure
    • Director requirements for joining a board
    • Director duties and liabilities
    • Differences in listing rules between China and Hong Kong
    • Differences in corporate requirements between listed and private companies
    • Impact of COVID on companies, regulations and governance
  • Finding a Director Position
    • The executive search process
    • Opportunities and the market
    • How to find positions
  • Board Culture - A Director's Personal Insight
