Our corporate governance training course provides delegates with an understanding of key governance debates and principles and offers practical advice on how to achieve best practice.

The high level principles of good corporate governance are the same for all companies and organisations around the world. Board work and decisions should be based on common sense and not made to be unduly complicated.

The governing body might have different names such as Chamber, Board, Council, Ruling body, Committee etc. but the high level principles of good governance remain the same in our view.
