Find out more about the course

The course is tailored to experienced directors wishing to take their performance to the next level, as well as executives and managers who need to understand international governance issues in depth.

The course caters to leaders who are working across regulatory frameworks and/or looking to engage in business with an Australian organisation. Participants include directors, CEOs and executives of international, public, private, not-for-profit and government organisations.

The face to face International Company Directors Course is based on global governance principles. It covers directors’ duties, the international legal environment, risk and strategy, financial literacy and board effectiveness.

Through this course, you will:

  • Examine the duties and responsibilities of directors across major international regulatory frameworks.

  • Learn how to apply tools to increase your organisation’s effectiveness across borders.

  • Gain insight into legal and risk issues for directors who work in a global context.

  • Understand the board’s contribution to strategic planning in a global context.

  • Explore international case studies which illustrate the differences in responsibilities of a global director.

The course is held in Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Fiji and Dubai. The intensive sessions are run by facilitators who have extensive international director experience, providing an interactive learning environment.

The Company Directors Course™ comprises specific topics, chosen to enhance your learning. You will explore the role of the board and the practice of directorship in the international context, as well as the influence of culture on the international board. You will have the opportunity to understand the duties and responsibilities of international directors and upskill your financial literacy.

Upon completion, you will understand how to increase the effectiveness of an international board and how to evaluate its financial health. You will also be able to practice the material covered in the course through a simulated board meeting.
