Good governance to protect you and your business

Rix & Kay, along with the Institute of Directors, presents our latest webinar for business owners and directors. This webinar was first presented live on 6 October 2022.

About the webinar

All too often Directors find themselves facing civil or even criminal penalties for breaching their statutory duties, even when they believe they have done nothing wrong. And now, as government measures to protect businesses intensify, the spotlight on Directors has never been so bright.

Listen to specialist corporate and governance partners Kathryn Paisley, Dan Sherlock and Richard Ludlow from Rix & Kay, and John Harte, Managing Partner at Integrity Governance and a Fellow at the IoD, who discuss critical governance issues and best practice for directors.

The webinar is ideal for experienced Directors and those new to or considering a Director’s role, who want to fully understand their duties essential for running any organisation.

In particular, the webinar coverers:

  • Director’s corporate duties and responsibilities
  • Director’s personal liability for breach of duty
  • Personal liability if a company becomes insolvent and why early action is imperative
  • Best practice for good corporate governance
