Over recent weeks the focus on corporate governance in Irish public and commercial life has been extensive.
For State Boards and entities that are in receipt of significant levels of public funding, there are very high expectations that high standards will apply to the governance and management of such organisations.
And as we have seen recently there are very public channels and structures to address departures from best practice and non-compliance with recognised codes.
On 16 May 2019 PAI will host a special conference which will address recent developments in Corporate Governance in Ireland. The Conference will be a timely opportunity to address a range of issues which have recently emerged in public and political discourse. They are also issues that go to the heart of how State Boards and publicly funded entities are run.
A range of expert speakers and panellists will address issues including;
- Securing a proper skills match on State Boards
- Setting the boundaries of responsibilities and information flows within State Boards and between the executives and Directors
- Managing the reporting and funding relationships between Departments, State Companies, and Agencies.
- Accountability – examining the relationship between Boards, Departments and the Oireachtas – is the balance right?
- Managing risk – determining and mitigating risk.
This event will be of particular interest to Board members, Company Secretaries, CFOs, Directors of Corporate Affairs & Risk and Compliance Managers. It will be a practical, focused and targeted event – all participants will also benefit from 4 CPD hours.
Further details of the event are set out below and you can reserve a place by calling 01 8198500 or online here.
I look forward to seeing you at the event
