When a corporate scandal erupts, the same old questions get asked amidst shareholder opprobrium and the glare of publicity.

What was the board of directors thinking? What were they doing? How could it let something like this happen? Why were the directors not doing a better job of corporate management?

Even businesses with highly competent board members (and which historically have displayed exemplary corporate management) can - and indeed do - make mistakes.

Ideal for corporate and commercial law fee earners, this session considers the steps that can be taken to help your corporate clients avoid the typical executive errors that can lead to difficulties.

Expert speaker Iain Sim will offer pragmatic hints and tips to help equip participants to provide better and more commercially aware advice to their corporate clients.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • The dominant CEO who intimidates directors
  • Weak chair-persons who cannot fulfil the role properly
  • Typical dysfunctional board dynamics - the warning signs
  • Contributory factors (including outside job demands, board size, frequency of meetings, and the diversity of the board)
  • Encouraging good corporate behaviour (including establishing term limits, defining board roles, peer reviews and board performance reviews)
  • Getting the best people (including not underselling the commitment)
  • Managing bad corporate behaviour (including behaviours that are counter-productive and how address these issues head-on)

This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Friday 19th April 2024 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
