Description
This is a specially designed program for corporate directors of large companies including those directors of corporations that are publicly traded on the securities exchanges. In today’s complex corporate environment, a director and any member of the board, has increasing corporate responsibilities and liabilities, some of which are very severe in relation to the compensation received for being a director.

Securities exchange regulations and corporate law has made it very onerous on every director of a corporation who is personally held accountable for any decisions made by the board of directors.Issues of fraud, incompetence and personal negligence are being heaped on to every director of the board and some have potential risk of heavy fines and even imprisonment.

The corporation is managed by the CEO and his or her team that provide to the directors the plans and business proposals, and the team executes the daily operations. The capability to understand the business plans and the financial impact and policies pursued by the CEO and his or her team is crucial – not only for benefit of the company but also to ensure that the director personally would not be labelled as negligent in the event of a court situation. The issues expected to be involved in the board room include financial performance, business plans and budgets, financial policies and financial risk.

The legal aspect aside, many private companies have members of the board who are drawn from the owners and their families while some professional managers are involved in day to day management. The lack of financial understanding of key issues often leads to board room conflict and eventually loss of attention to the business.

For better understanding of financial risk and the performance of a director’s duties at the board level, all directors, especially those without financial skills background, should empower himself or herself with sufficient working knowledge to deal with matters expected to be discussed in the board room. Issues relating to finance is simply too important to be outsourced to the finance department or to the CEO.
