Chartered Management Institute Recognised Training Centre for Director and Executive Training Courses.
This Company Secretary training course is designed for both experienced and newly appointed or about to be appointed Company Secretaries who want to ensure that they are able to provide the best possible support to the Board. For this you should know and understand the collective board responsibilities, as well as the individual responsibilities of directors.
The Company Secretary is an officer of the company and is at the centre of many decision making processes. He or she will usually also be a Board Director or a Senior Manager. The Company Secretary offers guidance to the Board and protects the interests of the company and its stakeholders. The Company Secretary is a central figure within the Corporate Governance function of the company.
This requires the Company Secretary to know and understand the collective responsibilities of the board, as well as the individual responsibilities of directors. This means you must become and remain familiar with all of the relevant laws and regulations, including the Companies Act 2006, the relevant aspects of the 2018 UK Corporate Governance Code and the new legislation in effect from 1 January 2021.
This course will clearly explain the role and responsibilities of the Company Secretary, as well as the recent Corporate Governance and legal changes effective through 2021.
To ensure that the participants attending this training course will get the maximum possible benefit from their time and that the discussions will be at their most effective; the participant numbers will be limited to a maximum of 8 attendees.
