    RAISING THE CURTAIN ON BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP OF COMPANIES:

    Company compliance – The new law that affects you 

    You may have to pay a fine or face significant penalties if you own a company today!

    Date: Thursday 29th August 2019

    Time: 7:00am to 10:30am

    Venue: Hyatt Regency, Trinidad

    Do you know if YOU are affected by the Companies Amendment Act 2019?

    This new law now makes it mandatory for companies to submit new documents to the Companies Registry or face penalties which include fines and jail time. Every company and every shareholder should now consider whether they are affected by this new law which came into force on May 29, 2019 and introduced the new filing requirements – which had a deadline of June 28, 2019.

    We invite you to attend this Breakfast Seminar to consider the implications arising from this new law and discuss how best you can prepare yourself and your company to ensure compliance.

    All companies (with limited exceptions*) and their directors, company secretaries and other officers as well as shareholders are affected by this new law and should attend.

    *Public companies with shares listed on the Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange are exempted from these requirements as are Companies listed on a regulated market.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    Spotlight on Directors Duties – One Day Workshop

    In our recent breakfast seminar series, “Spotlight on Directors,” we explored the challenges faced by directors in meeting the requirements of the duties imposed on them by law. 

    We noted that the Privy Council advised in the eTeck case that the limitation period does not provide directors with protection for breach of fiduciary duty. 

    Furthermore, the shareholder, whether it be the State or any other, does not bear the same responsibility under the law as the director, and therefore, accountability remains with the Board of Directors.

    The focus of our workshop is on what are the actions that may constitute a breach.  What steps can directors take to demonstrate that they have fulfilled the duty of care and the duty of trust. Attendance at this workshop will assist directors in developing appropriate decision-making processes to identify and avoid potential breaches of duty and promote robust decisions that can withstand scrutiny.

    Target attendees:

    Directors, Corporate secretaries, General counsel, External attorneys advising boards of directors and Managers who provide information to Boards for decision making.

    Our breakfast Seminar

     An effective board – the Chairman’s Role

    The chairman’s role in leading an effective board:  the role of the chairman is crucial in ensuring a board’s effective performance. The chairman sets the board agenda but is also responsible for how the board works in dealing with that agenda, ensuring that each director has the opportunity to make a contribution and that the board as a whole benefits from the collective experience and expertise of all members.The Chairman also plays a key role in maintaining the “tone at the top” that influences the corporate culture.

    The Chairman is a leader whose leadership is directed to bringing out the best in all participants in the corporate decision-making process. This role requires special skills and competencies: to be a strong personality but not overwhelming, to lead but not dominate, an effective communicator and active listener; encouraging free flow of discussion but keeping “on topic.”

    Recent events reported in the media show the difficulties that can be experienced in this role.  At this breakfast seminar our panel will comprise a group of experienced chairmen who will discuss the special challenges of this role and share their insights.

    Target attendees:

    Chairmen and aspiring chairmen, directors, corporate secretaries and senior officers who prepare board papers or otherwise provide strategic information to the board.
