Corporate Secretary Webinar – How technology can help improve governance

Presented by

Corporate Secretary and Computershare Georgeson

About this talk

Corporate secretaries and general counsel have for years looked to ensure best practices at the board level in areas such as recruiting, training, onboarding and assessing directors. Increasingly, though, companies are facing greater regulatory scrutiny of governance across the entire organization. High-profile frauds and other problems that have arisen at a subsidiary level can have a major – or indeed fatal – impact on the parent company. Authorities around the world are looking for greater transparency at the entity level, not just at the holding company. Governance teams are having to provide this transparency and ensure best practices are being upheld across the organization, often without additional resources. •How can you best assign risk categories to entities across the organization? •How can technology be used for work such as board assessments, training and onboarding directors and keeping minutes at the subsidiary-board level? •What role does technology have in ensuring transparency at subsidiaries to enable oversight from the parent company? •Should this work be assigned to or shared with compliance, accounting and tax functions?
