Today’s board of directors does, and probably should, look, feel and act differently from those of even a few years ago. What has brought about this evolution, and why? And what will, and should, the board of tomorrow and beyond be doing to meet the expectations of the company’s stakeholders, the New Zealand public and even the global community?

Presented by a panel with breadth and depth of expertise and experience in matters of corporate governance, this seminar will provide attendees with practical insights and guidance for advising directors of both small and large companies.

These materials will help you:

  • Receive an update on the legal, moral and ethical responsibilities of a board of directors in regard to ‘best interests’, including the increasing influence and impact of various codes of conduct.
  • Improve your knowledge and understanding of key themes and drivers for reasonable, responsible and responsive boards, including sustainability (in its broadest sense) and health and wellbeing.
  • Acquire a deeper understanding of the impact of a board’s actions on the company’s reputation and long-term standing.

Intended audience:

All lawyers who act for/advise directors of companies of whatever size. Directors, all interested in the topic of governance may also benefit from attending.
