In today's legal and regulatory climate, directors and senior executives need more than ever to have a clear understanding of the responsibilities and personal liabilities they carry, the skills to deal with conflict in the boardroom and the tools to manage the relationship between the company and its shareholders. This course looks in detail at those responsibilities and liabilities, and considers directors' wider responsibilities in such areas as health and safety and environmental protection.
