SME Directors/Committee Members... “Corporate Knowledge” Is Important

Issue 020

By 30th June 2019 company directors/committee members participating in the Corporate Governance Network will have gained new knowledge relative to their duties and responsibilities as directors/committee members together with a better understanding of how the various components of a company/organisation interreact to enhance business performance.

If you are a company director/committee member and this is the sort of objective you’d like to pursue, why not join us?

In Workshop/Webinar No 2, participants will have the opportunity of hearing presentations on key areas relating to directors/committee members’ corporate knowledge of their company/organisation:

  • “A positive culture is vital!”, Andrew Geddes, Public Company Director, Former Chair of Greencross Ltd.
  • “Notifiable Data Breaches – a New Concern for Directors”, Ross Contarino, Business Facilitator – Supply Chain, Australian Industry Group.
  • “Good Budgeting Helps Businesses Operate Efficiently”, Paul Barnaby, Regional Consultant, Plan Guru.
