Global Corporate Governance

Corporate Governance is an unavoidable topic of debate in corporate boardrooms, academic roundtables, and for governments worldwide. Several recent events have driven the heightened interest in corporate governance, including corporate implosions over the last ten years and the subsequent increased demand for continuous improvement and transparency in the boardroom.

As an integrated collection of capabilities that allow a business to reliably achieve its objectives, address uncertainty and act with integrity, Corporate Governance is often associated with how well companies are run. This, in turn means that hiring the best talent for this part of organisations is imperative.
