Many business critical decisions are from the boardroom and effective boards will have the dynamic duo of board secretaries and general counsels being part of the exciting push for strategy-driven and high-performing boards. In today’s increasingly transparent business environment, there is a clarion call for a well-informed strategic advisor with a holistic view across all aspects of governance. Yet in many companies, there is a yawning gap in this area and it is one that either the board secretary or general counsel is often best-placed and qualified to fill. By seizing this role, the duo can act as the conscience of the organisation and the board’s key source of information on emerging risk and issues. As a conduit and enabler, you stand in an enviable position as the interface between the board, shareholders and the business units. This interaction will enable you to gather intelligence and become a strategic tool in influencing policy directions and business decisions.

Invest in our upcoming 3-day conference ‘Board Secretaries & General Counsels Africa’ that provides you a wealth of intelligence on ‘’Strengthening Your Governance Chapter’ and ‘Commercial Awareness of Board Wide Issues’ in our sunrise plenary sessions. We also present to you a regulatory dialogue and directors’ box of insights session that engages you in high-level discussions on regulator’s shifting focus in Africa and building the right synergy with board members. Do not miss our spotlight thought leader keynote on ‘King IV Report – Bolder than Ever!’ by Professor Mervyn King. You will also get access to participate in our customised boardroom banter emulation on conflict of interest, scenario analysis stimulation  on crises and best practice think-tank which challenges you to think outside the box. Our conference will help you build your commercial muscle and  prep you on what to look out for next. Bring these essential aspects to bear in our one day post-conference brain-based technique workshop on ‘Play to Your Strength and Recharge Your Thinking in the Boardroom.
