The spotlight is on corporate governance: can you risk non-compliance?

Corporate governance has again shot up the political agenda following the collapse of Enron, which has raised serious concerns over the objectivity of non-executive directors, accountants and auditors. Patricia Hewitt has ordered an enquiry into the responsibilities of non-executive directors, to consider the lessons of the Enron collapse, in addition to the reviews on directors’ remuneration and the role of the auditor, alongside the recently published Company Law Review.

As a result of in-depth research conducted by Vision in Business - winners of the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise - with the rule and standard making bodies and senior industry executives involved in corporate governance, a comprehensive programme tackling all the latest issues has been put together and an advance copy is enclosed for your information. This is the latest in a series of successful audit and risk management events organised by Vision in Business.
