Are you looking to unlock the potential in your business?

This program has been specifically designed for owners, managers and directors of small-to-medium enterprises who are focused on the growth of their business.

It will particularly suit owners of businesses with 5 to 50 employees, annual revenue of between $5 million and $25 million or others outside these parameters who are experiencing high scale growth.

It is recommended that leaders from the same enterprise attend together so that discussions can be tailored to your business and identified solutions can be implemented more effectively and efficiently. The AICD is offering special rates for multiple attendees from the same business.

Delivered as a series of short, sharp workshops by experts who understand the unique needs of SMEs, this program will equip you with the mindset, practical tools, and network of peers to take your business to the next level.

The SME Governance Program is designed to help you step away from the day-to-day and focus on your role and responsibilities as a director of your business. Through four interactive workshops, you will learn about relevant governance practices and how they can be applied to your business today to create sustainable value.

Participants complete the program with a cohort of fellow business owners, and workshops provide the opportunity for attendees to connect, share knowledge, and learn from each other.

The SME Governance Program will equip business owners and leaders with the practical tools and relevant governance knowledge to drive growth and create value in their business.

This course is delivered as four 4-hour workshops covering the following topics:

  1. Value creation through governance
  2. Value creation through strategy
  3. Value creation through financial management
  4. Value creation through risk reduction

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Assess the financial health of their business and use this information to improve cash flow and profitability.
  • Identify the key risks impacting their business and implement appropriate risk management strategies.
  • Apply relevant governance practices – including effective decision making – to generate value and drive sustainable growth.

With a maximum of 25 participants per course, workshops are practical and interactive and facilitators will encourage participants to apply learnings to their own circumstances.

Participants receive course materials including director tools, checklists and templates and will walk away with a plan that can be directly applied to their business. Minimal pre-reading is required.
