  • Ever found yourself wondering exactly where your role stops and the boards begins?
  • Could you be personally liable for breaches of the law by your company?
  • Do you have a solid understanding of compliance, insurance and IR?
  • What are the questions you should be asking your CFO?

CEO Tasmania is delighted to announce our Master Class for CEOs. Governance – Know Your Roles and Responsibilities. This course is designed for you the leader in business. It will be delivered in a concise, outcome driven and highly productive manner. No reams of paper to read, no tests to sit rather hands on instruction and panel discussions from experts in the areas that really matter to you.

The CEO and the Board share responsibility for leadership but they fulfill this responsibility in different ways. Understanding the responsibilities and roles of board members and the CEO is fundamental to the principles of good governance. How confident are you in these matters?

Master Classes are driven out of the discussion that takes place in CEO Tasmania business forums. They are purposely short and designed for very small groups. This is to enhance the learning opportunity provided and is in keeping with our philosophy to guard the privacy of all concerned.
