Taking skill to the next level: AICD Review

Monday, 01 July 2002


    The 2002 Skills Update Program, designed to develop the skills, knowledge and experience gained by members in the Company Directors Course, is being successfully roadshowed throughout Australia.

    Titled Forensic Investigation for Directors – recognising the warning signs, the program is being conducted by Richard Thomas, account director with Deloitte Forensic in Perth. The half-day program gives AICD members an understanding of the reasons behind a particular financial result, enables them to uncover any existing problems within the company and enhances their ability to quiz management on a range of subjects relating to disputes, investigations, insurance risks and technology. Forensic Investigation for Directors combines the latest forensic investigation techniques with real-life examples to bring AICD members a modern perspective of risk management.

    The program will be run in Perth on 22 August and Sydney later in the year.

    The Compliance Update program, designed to update members on legislative changes over the past 12 months, will be roadshowed throughout Australia in November. Further information will be included in forthcoming issues of Company Director.

    Following the success of Company Directors Courses being conduced in rural locations throughout Australia, the Gippsland Community Leadership Alumni, as part of its commitment to leadership development in Gippsland, has arranged for AICD to deliver the Company Directors Course in Sale, Victoria for the first time in July 2002. Please contact Teresa Kaminski in our Melbourne office (03 9211 9255) for further details.

    AICD, in conjunction with the Waite Group, conduct two programs – Board Step – a program for executive men and women to prepare them for successful director roles and Ultimate Step – a leadership program for executive women seeking top management and director appointments.

    Board Step will be conducted in Melbourne in August and Sydney in October.

    Ultimate Step will be conducted in September in both Melbourne and Sydney.
