Finance professionals and Accountants are gatekeepers of governance and risk management. Their roles are vital in the monitoring and managing of compliance using good corporate governance practices.

This is crucial as companies are answerable to shareholders and stakeholders who expect good governance and especially more so now with the recent focus on Environment, Social and Governance (ESG). Therefore, a sound understanding of the Code of Corporate Governance will ensure the Company implement adequate and effective risk mitigating controls.

With the sharing of topical issues on corporate governance and discussions through case-studies of past cases of corporate mis-governance, this would give the participants an in-depth understanding of the essentials of corporate governance and risk management.

This practical workshop will cover topics such as the Code of Corporate Governance 2018, Roles of Board of Directors, Interested Person Transactions Vs Related Party Transaction, Determination of Independence, Transaction & Disclosure and Enterprise Risk Management.
