In this fast-paced webinar you will learn about the Top 10 Ways Corporate Secretaries let our Directors down and (more importantly) how your organization can do better. Within the Top 10 Ways, Sylvia will explore issues such as:
- Poor director life cycle practices that mean our organizations don't get the best of our directors
- The ways we waste directors' time before, during and after every meeting
- How we expose both our directors and our organizations to unnecessary risk
