The Effective Director Series 6-8 April

The Effective Director Series is a sharply focused three-day programme delivering critical content in a condensed period of time. It is designed for busy directors who want to gain skills and knowledge that can be put into immediate practice.

Each session will include a mix of presentations, discussions, case studies and simulated situations. On successful completion you will receive the Governance New Zealand Effective Director Certificate.

Armed with this, you will be well placed to address any challenges and opportunities arising from your directorships with new-found confidence and skill.

Who should attend

This course is designed for:

  • newly appointed directors starting their governance journey
  • more experience directors wanting to refine their skills and knowledge
  • executives seeking a director-transition pathway
  • anyone wanting to understand the role and responsibilities of a director

Course structure

You will be provided with a board pack for a sample company and its subsidiaries to provide you with a near-to-real-life situation. Using this pack, you will review the governance and associated risks of the organisations, look beyond the financials, and learn how to recognise the right questions to ask.
