GRCI's central purpose is to provide the tools and support our members need to build robust and engaging compliance frameworks in their organisations.

Some members, working in small to medium sized entities, have flagged that they need the kind of one day course that they could send senior managers and new directors on, to help with their induction and understanding of their governance level responsibilities, as well as understanding how compliance and risk management works, what they might report up to the various committees and board, how to understand the implications of these reports and how this fits with their fiduciary duties.

This is that course.

If you need to quickly get a new director up to speed and want to be able to demonstrate that you took your onboarding seriously, this is a great start to help them engage with their responsibilities. Delivered in partnership with Ethical Leadership & Compliance Australia the pricing for this course is designed to assist our members obtain quick approvals. It is anticipated that directors may then wish to further their education by undertaking more formal qualifications but this is a quick start solution to equipping them immediately.

Those attending this one day course, will cover:

  1. Discovering the company officer environment
  2. Obligations and Duty of Care
  3. 3rd party counsel
  4. Limiting operational risk
  5. Demanding and retaining support
  6. Exercising Continual improvement and vigilance
  7. Delegating accountability… Can I?
