Course description

The Evolving Role of the Company Secretary

The course will cover the life cycle of a company focusing on the practical duties and responsibilities of a company secretary at each stage. This practical seminar will provide you with a thorough and up-to-date understanding of the duties and responsibilities of a company secretary focusing on the areas a company will be concerned with both at the outset and on a daily and annual basis. The speaker will highlight the key aspects of company legislation with which the company secretary must be concerned, as well as considering the changes implemented/proposed by the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 (which received Royal Assent on 26 March 2015) that will have a direct impact on the day to day work of the company secretary. 

Suitability - Who should attend?

Company secretaries and assistant secretaries of private companies registered under the Companies Acts. The course will also be of value to trainee/junior solicitors and accountants who are involved in corporate or company secretarial work. In addition, the course will benefit anyone who requires a practical awareness of current companies legislation (including the impact of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015) and how it impacts on the day to day running of a company, for example finance directors.
