Suitability - Who should attend?


It is recommended that delegates attend both Parts 1 and 2 as part of a two-day programme. However, it is not necessary to do so. Attendance on both parts can be booked separately. If you opt to attend both parts, you can choose to attend on successive days or leave a gap between each part.

Company Secretary’s Role Part 1deals with the core duties of the company secretary.

This is the second part of a two-day programme designed for newly appointed company secretaries and their assistants from either public or private companies (whether limited by guarantee or limited by shares) and may also be suitable as a refresher for more experienced company secretarial staff.

It should be noted that the session on shares and share capital will not necessarily be relevant to staff from a company limited by guarantee.
