This little bill
A new bill drawn from the member’s ballot box last month could see a shift in directors' duties.
A week long course to develop your governance skills and create a significant step change in your professional performance.
There is a limited number of non-residential places available on the Company Directors’ Course in Christchurch 13-18 March 2022. To book one of these places or waitlist for courses, please phone our Governance Development team on 0800 846 369.
In the week-long CDC course you explore the director's roles and responsibilities with other directors. Each day you participate in board simulation exercises, bringing to life case studies that highlight the unpredictable nature of business and the human nature of directorship.
This is a one week course.
The residential format of CDC includes accommodation. Most of our CDC participants choose the residential option, even if they reside in the same city as the course delivery.
If you do not require accommodation, the non-residential CDC format may be more suitable. The course content is the same for both formats.
Sunday 3.00pm to Friday 2.00pm
