SEC-accredited seminar on corporate governance

(The Philippine Star) - December 5, 2015 - 9:00am

MANILA, Philippines – Having effective board directors translate to better business performance and governance.  To help board directors and key officers of public and publicly-listed firms align themselves with global standard on effective governance and comply with the SEC- mandated requirement to attend a corporate governance seminar in order for them to be eligible for election or re-election in the board or assume key positions in management, the Center for Global Best Practices (CGBP) will conduct an SEC-accredited seminar titled, “Board Effectiveness Best Practices” on Jan. 21, 2016 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, Mandaluyong City. 

This one-day special corporate governance program is designed to address two important issues: (1) to provide capacity building for board directors by presenting to them the global best practices in board effectiveness drawn from the most updated global research of the largest accounting firm in the world – PriceWaterhouse Coopers / Isla Lipana to be presented by former PWC chairperson Judith V. Lopez. She will also share her valuable insights and experiences being a board director of many companies across various industries; (2) to help all board directors comply with SEC-mandated requirement for them to attend a corporate governance seminar yearly. All board directors of public and publicly-listed companies must attend a corporate governance seminar once a year to be eligible for election / re-election in the board of a corporation. This will also feature Jonathan Ravelas, chief market strategist of the largest commercial bank in the Philippines, BDO. For details and a complete list of upcoming best practices seminars including  BSP-accredited Corporate Governance, Board Directors’ Guide for Audit Committees, Best Practices in Corporate Housekeeping for Board Secretaries and Assistant Board Secretary, and more, log on to www.cgbp.org or call (+63 2) 842-7148/ 59 and 556-8968/ 69, Cebu lines: (+63 32) 512-3106 or 07 or Baguio line: (+63 74) 423-5148 and Legaspi City telephone (+6352) 736-0126.

This is to provide a new and fresh perspective from the repetitive lectures done yearly for board directors.  As one of the few SEC-accredited training providers, CGBP will feature the best practices for board directors to help them enhance their skills to become better members or leaders of the board.
