A 2 day course held at venues across the UK.

The Company Secretary is the Chief Administrative Officer of the company and shares various responsibilities with the Directors under the Companies Act. Private companies are no longer obliged to appoint a company secretary although most continue to do so. This is because the associated duties/requirements remain (i.e. if there is no Company Secretary then Directors must understand and fulfil responsibilities).

The Company Secretary holds a strategic position of considerable influence at the heart of an organisation’s governance. It is in everyone's interest to ensure the Company Secretary is the right person for the job, understands what’s involved and gets adequate support in their role.

This ‘Role of the Company Secretary’ course is designed to equip you with the tools and knowledge to carry out this critical and complex position. Through attendance, you will learn how to engage with the wider corporate aims of your organisation, ensuring the outcomes you produce and deliver are aligned to the broader organisational goal.
