The Chartered Governance Institute's competency framework maps the skills, values and understanding that company secretaries need to succeed at different stages of their careers in today’s evolving governance environment.
Our speaker, John Heaton FCG, President of the Institute, will present the competency framework which was developed in collaboration with governance professionals from many levels and sectors.
The presentation will be followed by a debate around the issues arising from John’s talk with a particular emphasis on: ‘A company secretary can only be great if they are a secretary to a great board of directors’.
Do you know someone who is interested in becoming a governance professional? Guests are more than welcome so bring them along.
