IoD Webinar

17 September 2020 9:30am

As part of our ongoing work to share exclusive content and insights with members, we are delighted to invite you to join our upcoming webinar entitled, 'The Changed and Changing Landscape for Directors - The New Reality' with Ken Casey, Partner and Head of Corporate, Hayes solicitors.

2020 has been the most unexpectedly challenging year for businesses and business leaders.

While the impact of COVID-19 is likely to continue to generate further challenges in 2020 and beyond, it is worth pausing now to consider recent key changes in the law and corporate governance standards, and to look ahead to anticipate and prepare for expected key changes.

In this webinar, Ken Casey will discuss the following key elements:

  • Recent Company Law changes, as well as guidance and compliance statements from the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement (ODCE) and the Companies Registration Office (CRO).
  • Directors responsibility to stakeholders.
  • Overcoming challenges to hold effective board meetings and governance.
  • Data protection and cyber-security.
  • Board diversity and other broader corporate governance trends.
  • Brexit.

Please note, there will be a live Q&A facility for this webinar.
