Why attend the training session:

  • Being a director of a company is one of those things many people take as natural like being a business person.
  • Anybody can start a business but not everybody who may start a business can be a director.
  • Many people who are directors do not even understand what it means to be a director.
  • Some people who think understand what it means to be a director may only understand from one perspective, not through the relevant governance framework considered collectively.
  • The purpose of our training is to expose and equip attendees with the understanding of what it means to be a director from the Companies Act, 2008, King IV Report, 2016 as well as the Public Finance Management Act, 1999 (PFMA).
  • The three documents are considered separately and then integrated for an appropriate understanding of how the directors must consider them in real-life situations depending on the context of the private sector as well as that of the public sector in the instance of state-owned companies.

What will you learn from attending:

  • Companies Act with special focus on relevant definitions, ex officio director, prescribed officer, governance of companies with special focus on relevant sections of Chapter 2 Part F of the Act, MOI, Shareholders Agreement & Rules of the Company;
  • With regard to King IV Report the focus is on relevant definitions, differences between previous King Reports and the King IV, King IV Report objectives, Principles 1-9 and key recommended practices ;
  • PFMA focuses on relevant definitions, as well as sections 49,50,51,54 and 56;
