IoDSA Company Secretary

IoDSA CoSec_Directors_Insurance

Join us for a morning of networking and reflecting on current corporate governance challenges faced by organisations and the increasing reliance on company secretaries. Engage with IoDSA facilitators and employees and explore how the IoDSA can further assist you in your corporate governance role. 

Using the African Bank S69 regulatory enquiry as an example, and taking lessons learned therefrom, our key speaker, Teri Solomon will address the topic of Directors and Officers Liability insurance and the role of the company secretary in this regard. 

Speaker; Teri Solomon “Serving as a director or officer carries many inherent personal liability risks, however serving as a director or officer in the current climate has increased these risks exponentially.

South Africa is at a tipping point, where shareholders are taking action against delinquent directors, regulators are flexing their investigatory muscles and stakeholders are holding their boards to account.

Never before have boards been more reliant on their company secretaries for their advice, their guidance and their counsel. Company secretaries have become an indispensable asset to ensuring the board discharges their fiduciary duties to the company and to acting as a cohesive whole.”

Teri is the head of the Financial and Professional Practice at Marsh South Africa. She is an attorney with 20 years of management liability and financial services insurance experience. Teri has placed some of the largest directors and officers insurance programs in the world and has acted as claims advocate in many D&O claims. Teri is a member of the IoDSA’s corporate governance forum, is the chairperson of the Marsh Pension Fund and is herself a director on various private companies. Teri is regular speaker at governance and risk management conferences.
