Are Jamaican corporate boards living up to their responsibility of being accountable to stakeholders and shareholders? How do Jamaican laws compare to others in the Caribbean and to international best practices?
These and other burning issues will be explored during the 2015 groundbreaking workshop to be hosted in Jamaica by the Caribbean Corporate Governance Institute (CCGI). Entitled ‘Corporate Governance… Board Accountability, Disclosures, Audits and Evaluations’, the workshop is scheduled to take place on Thursday, February 12, at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
The workshop which will be addressed by experts in the field of corporate governance will share primary research findings and provide examples and guidance for effective accountability. Some other topics which will be covered include: Guidance on how boards can demonstrate accountability and what shareholders need to look for; as well as guidance on how and what to disclose about an organisation’s corporate governance practices.
Lead facilitator at the workshop will be Dr. Axel Kravatzky, Chairman, CCGI , and founding Chair of the first and only non-profit membership organization dedicated to best practice Corporate Governance in the Caribbean.
