Governance for SME's





The programme is aimed at two types of business owners – the business owner that has established a small business that does not intend it to grow into a large company; and, the business owner that is initially small
and want to grow into a large company. Understanding the core business of the company helps in determining
the core competences required to establish and grow the business. And, in knowing this base, can integrate
good business practices – and, inevitably good governance – into the already growing business practice.

Delegates attending this one day workshop will gain exposure to understanding the fundamentals of corporate governance, strategy development, the use of financial statements and the management of cash flows to
ensure a sustainable future for their organization.

From a technical perspective this programme aims to teach SME entrepreneurs, owner managers, managing directors and other senior executives about how to develop other commercial fundamentals and, by so doing, integrate good business practice and, ultimately, good governance principles, into their growing business.
