7TH EDITION: Corporate Governance & Improving Board Effectiveness 2018, Singapore



This program will address key corporate governance issues faced by boards and principal board committees. Public companies and their directors and officers face increasing responsibilities, and even increased risk of liability. They are also under intense scrutiny and in at least some cases significant pressure from investors and regulators. Changing investor expectations and increased investor willingness to seek or force change, through activist campaigns and other methods, have changed the environment in which directors and officers and their advisers operate. These developments have been complicated by significant legal and regulatory changes, including evolving standards under Delaware law and SEC and other federal developments in rulemaking and enforcement.

Corporate governance provides the framework within which directors and officers must operate in fulfilling their responsibilities. In-house and outside advisers are called on both to provide day-to-day counselling and to address crisis situations in the corporate governance context. Our program will both highlight the fast-moving market and legal and regulatory developments that directors, officers and their advisers face, as well as provide practical guidance as to how to address them.
