ICSA’s 2014 educational programme kicks off with a lunchtime seminar tackling the challenges that increasing regulatory and governance regimes pose to commerciality and getting business done.
Speakers ICSA chief executive Simon Osborne and Collas Crill partner Ian Kirk will tackle Governance versus Commerciality at the event at St James on 30 January.
Simon Osborne has frequently visited Guernsey since taking over at ICSA, where he has guided the Institute through constitutional changes as the body continues to modernise and develop. Ian Kirk is a recognised expert in corporate law.
The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators, Bailiwick of Guernsey Branch, 2014 programme includes monthly professional development seminars, industry updates and events for ICSA members and students and other island industry professionals.
Branch chairman Tom Lancaster-King said: “Our first seminar for 2014, Governance versus Commerciality, sets the scene for the year ahead as firms strive to balance regulatory requirements with good governance practises and, of course, commercial success.
“We continue the theme at the third annual ICSA Guernsey Conference “Getting the Balance Right” on 30 April and throughout the year the branch will host CPD talks on popular subjects including tax, funds, and trusts. We will also look at developments including technology in the boardroom and financial crime.
“A series of technical workshops in the autumn in collaboration with Collas Crill will focus on the needs of our students and new members.”
Places for “Governance versus Commerciality” can be booked online at www.icsaguernsey.eventbrite.co.uk priced at £15 for ICSA members and students or £20 for non-members, including refreshments and a buffet lunch. The seminar qualifies for 1.5 CDP points.
