Integrity. Accountability. Resilience

Strengthen your foundations to reinforce good governance and build resilient frameworks with insights from Australia’s business leaders.

Day one content focuses on governance. After a year of interrogating failures in governance, business leaders, governance professionals and risk managers are looking to reconnect with the foundations for good governance. This ‘back to basics’ moment offers a unique opportunity to build better governance systems for the future.

Day one topics

  • How governance has moved beyond agency to stewardship
  • The role of boards as a strategic partnership — examining the limits and limitations as well as the opportunities for a more contextual and informed board role
  • The critical questions to assess capability and to ensure cognitive diversity and skilling
  • Changes to regulation in the wake of the banking royal commission and new legislation and changing role of regulators
  • Interrogating integrity — culture, ethics, values and independence
  • Frameworks for accountability — roles, responsibilities, transparency, scrutiny, disclosure
  • The Company Secretary’s agenda for 2019 and 2020
  • Board assessment and metrics for performance
  • Sustainability — examining the long-term value proposition for investment, innovation and future proofing

Who should attend?

The forum is suitable for a variety of sectors including those working in governance and risk management roles in the listed, non-listed, public sector and not-for-profit space.

Why do I need to attend?

2019 was a year that saw governance in the news more than ever before: the Banking Royal Commission, the IPCC's report on climate change, ASX Corporate Governance Principles' diversity reporting requirements, industry disruption caused by new technologies. This is the time to upskill.
