The purpose of this seminar is to familiarise participants with the key aspects of the role of a company secretary of a private limited company and, more generally, corporate governance best practice. The course is aimed at both newcomers and those wanting to reflect and refresh.
With the assistance of a case study, the first part of the course follows the life cycle of a company and covers the major provisions of the Companies Act 2006 that impact on a secretary’s role, including the documentation and filing aspects (highlighting key changes brought about by the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 (“SBEEA”)), directors’ duties and liabilities, and company decision-making. Part 2 considers how to deal with directors’ duties and conflicts in the context of a real-life case study.
In addition, the seminar will consider the multi-faceted nature of the company secretarial role which can range from purely administrative to a strategic role within the board. Delegates will discuss board issues, board papers and the soft skillset necessary for company secretaries in this pivotal role.
As part of the case study, delegates will also examine common public filings, including small company accounts and a Confirmation Statement.
