7.12.2021 NEDonBoard & GT: Corporate Governance 2021 – a year of change

December 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

This event (hosted in person & online) will focus on Corporate Governance of UK boards, co-hosted with experts from Grant Thornton.

The previous year has been one of rapid evolution and change – and that looks set to continue.

What impact has governance had on agility and resilience and what will be the key themes moving forward?

And how can strong governance practices benefit your board executives, no matter their company size or structure?

Gain an insight into emerging trends and practices in FTSE 350 governance disclosure as Sarah Bell from the Grant Thornton Governance Institute present the findings of this year’s Corporate Governance Review.

Understand where leading companies are focusing their efforts and consider how you can support the board to strengthen their governance practices to face future challenges.

(We will also discuss how the findings relate to all organisations and not just focus on the FTSE.)
