Workshop 1:    In the Board Room: Responsibilities and Practice
 
This course will examine the separate roles of the board, directors and management, as well as the composition and structure of the board.

Introduction to Financial Statements for Directors will provide a straightforward introduction to financial statements from the director’s perspective.
