Corporate Governance for Listed Entities – Australia

Course Description

In this age of increasing scrutiny, company directors and officers must be aware of their duties. They must understand how to best manage their work practices for accountability purposes.

Based on our generic Corporate Governance course, this training course looks at the specific duties that subsidiaries and listed companies have under the current laws.

Corporate Governance includes comprehensive analysis of the source of corporate governance requirements, the duties owed by directors and officers of organisations, and to whom those duties are owed.

The course also examines the consequences of breaches of these duties. We direct you through the legislative and general law requirements that are currently in place and provide useful tips and case studies on some common “pitfalls” that can easily be avoided.

Included is a range of high profile case studies that identify where the company’s corporate governance measures failed. The course was updated recently to include a detailed description of the Centro case and what lessons can be learned from it.
