Course Description

Chartered Secretaries hold a range of jobs such as Corporate Counsel, Company Secretary, and Head of Governance, Risk and Compliance. What unites them is knowledge of legal and regulatory requirements, understanding of corporate strategy and structures, and the skills to support and advise, enabling directors and the board to make the right decisions.
