Governance 101: Introduction to the Duties of Directors

August 13 @ 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

$300.00 – $400.00

This interactive session provides practical exercises to enhance your governance skills and experience. A mock Board meeting will give participants a hands-on experience and attendees will be provided with a set of Board templates that can be adapted for their own use.

The session covers:
• Governance vs Management
• Strategy vs Operations
• Board and CEO (or GM or MD) relationship
• Duties of a Director including legislative and regulatory obligations
• Board Papers – getting the information you need to make good decisions
• Assessing Risk
• Budget Processes
• Managing Conflicts of Interest
• Good Board Practice – policies and procedures.


Thinking about becoming a director or trustee? Maybe you already are and want to brush up on your knowledge and skills? When is the right time to set up a governance board? How well are we doing in governance terms?

Facilitated by TorquePoint’s Simon Ewing-Jarvie and Hon Heather Roy (torquepoint.co.nz), these half-day courses are for anyone considering becoming a director, about to join a board or those who have recently become a director in either commercial or not-for-profit settings.

These workshops are fast-paced, serious fun where attendees also leave with a suite of digital tools for their governance journey. They are designed so as not to compete with the longer options provided by organisations such as the Institute of Directors.

These workshops are registered with RBP. You may be eligible for up to 50% funding to offset the cost of this workshop. Please contact us for details.
