The spate of corporate failures in recent years has put pressure on governments and boards globally to reinvent strategies aimed at strengthening public and private sector corporate governance. The power to improve the performance of corporate governance resides almost exclusively within the boards themselves. There has been little or no incentive for boards to address questions regarding their own operations because a few shareholders can see the connection between the excellence of board processes and company results. It is imperative for policy makers and directors of public and private organizations to improve and expedite their board’s effectiveness. Directors must cultivate and maintain the right balance between the board and management. They also have to manage the responsibilities of their boards towards customers, suppliers, employers, regulatory bodies, and the general public. It is against this background that this workshop is organized to equip participants from public and private sectors with the required skills to strengthen the corporate governance system for the attainment of overall goals.
