Meetings and Governance Best Practices

A CSCS cross-country practical workshop for Corporate Secretaries

Have you ever wished you knew how other Corporate Secretaries manage their board and committee meetings to make effective use of their time and provide all the support their directors' demand?

This "essentials" workshop will provide you with key tools for managing meetings and minutes in a risk-driven corporate landscape.

Spend an interactive ½-day gaining insight on both the practical and legal requirements you need to be aware of when holding meetings, taking minutes, recording procedures, guiding directors, preparing resolutions and managing special circumstances such as conflicts of interest.

PLUS, explore a list of governance scenarios you see every day and learn how experienced practitioners and peer companies deal with the issues.


  • The role of the Corporate Secretary before, during and after the meeting
  • The purpose of minutes: what to include, what to exclude, the four  “Cs” of style, the three formats, current and emerging issues and our top 10 tips for effective minutes
  • Other ideas for governance practices that might fit your organization to a tee and free up your valuable time
  • Board delegation, shareholder meetings, managing disclosure, corporate governance issues, subsidiary governance, supporting corporate departments and operations, policy maintenance, insiders, administration, and more
