1 Day Corporate Governance Framework® Workshop

18 August'17, Johannesburg

Overview:

Join Terrance M. Booysen in a 1-day practical Workshop where delegates will be provided insights that assist them to actually build a Corporate Governance Framework® for their company. Cutting past the rhetoric and academic hype, the delegates will spend the day discussing the components and then draft their own Corporate Governance Framework®.

As the governance blue-print of the company, this Workshop provides participants an understanding of the components required for a Corporate Governance Framework®. After the day session, delegates will have a clear understanding of their organisation’s shortfalls. And with this knowledge they will be equipped to rapidly fill the gaps in their respective organisations. By not blue-printing the organisation’s Corporate Governance Framework®, the organisation and its operations will forever be on the back-foot. With the ever-increasing risks and burdening legislation, organisations can be rapidly drawn into the quicksand, where profit making and sustainability becomes more of an illusion. There’s no doubt that business must make profit; and if the organisation’s governance framework is missing or lacking, they should expect the inevitable.

Why attend:

This 1-day Workshop is unique in South Africa. The Workshop is designed to extract maximum value from the lessons learnt at CGF and these are shared with the delegates who are required to direct and manage an organisation through a robust Corporate Governance Framework®. Clearly, when it comes to preparing and compiling a Corporate Governance Framework®, which is a strategically critical document (and process) for any type of organisation, careful attention and an understanding of the business and its risk appetite is required. Getting this framework and its components wrong can have devastating results upon the organisation, not least the organisation’s ability to attract astute investors, directors, employees and customers. This is no ordinary Workshop.

Your presenter:

Terrance M. Booysen (CEO: CGF Research Institute (Pty) Ltd) (‘Terry’) is well known for the content he has presented in the acclaimed Governance Beyond Boards® Interventions which has been attended by thousands of delegates across the continent. Through the years of research conducted by CGF, including the experience the company has gained with its many clients, Terry now shares CGF’s knowledge with organisations as to the important reasons of having a Corporate Governance Framework® established within an organisation. In this Workshop, Terry unpacks the practical manner in which a governance framework is approached and built. Delegates are taken through the various stages of building a governance framework, and thereafter are given an opportunity to practice the science behind their own governance frameworks.

Similar to the critical importance for Integrated Reporting, the organisation’s Corporate Governance Framework® will become an even more critical document for shareholders, directors and key stakeholders. The Corporate Governance Framework® is dynamic both as a document and as an assurance process. Its existence within an organisation will -- amongst other reasons -- become a key differentiator for those organisations who are able to attract and retain talented leadership in the organisation’s board and executive leadership, as well as ensure a sustainable business.

Terry is a regular podium presenter and is considered knowledgeable in the practice; having produced many governance, risk and compliance reports and articles over the last 13 years. He is also recognised by the Worldwide Who’s Who® organisation for his business accomplishments and knowledge within the arena of corporate governance. Through this recognition, he forms part of an extensive international network comprised of diverse and talented professionals, helping members to develop strong personal brands in order to distinguish themselves from others in their respective industries.
