Corporate Governance and Assurance

In an era where competitive advantage is key in distinguishing organisations, having “strong” corporate governance should be a priority. Being responsible for the organisation’s culture, the Board should be in charge of determining, communicating and transferring the appropriate set of behaviours which demonstrate that “strong” governance is in place. 

This training course will teach you how to establish the right culture in order to manage risks, and provide assurance to all stakeholders that your organisation’s processes and structures are not valuable as well as transparent.
