The modern day director is required to be financially literate, legally savvy, marketing, PR and communication sensitive, and still have enough energy and insight to stay competitive and ahead of the curve.

Recent case decision outcomes involving the persecution and fining of senior level executives as well as workplace – specific legislative changes have sparked greater vigilance and awareness of the personal, criminal and corporate liabilities placed on senior level directors and boards in their roles.

Akolade’s Directors’ and officers’ duties and liabilities is a one day, lawyer-led seminar addressing the governance, reporting and overall compliance of directors and the legal framework in which they operate. However, a balance needs to be struck, otherwise the risk of loss of competitiveness and innovation will be eminent.
