Power Breakfast: Role of the Company Secretary and Governance Professional in an IPO @ The Academy at DIFC

When October 2, 2018 @ 9:00 am - October 2, 2018 11:00 am
Details

A successful IPO is mainly about the trust the market has in the company and the perceived integrity of the information it releases.

While it is tempting for companies planning to go public to get their lawyers, accountants and financial advisers to lead the process, something important has to precede that. Well before consultations become advanced, the company should focus on preparing and strengthening its governance practices. Such an approach not only maximizes the chance of a successful floatation but gives the company the best possible chance of flourishing as a quoted business.

Company secretaries can play a pivotal role in establishing corporate governance, processes, internal controls and any legal and financial obligations as well as the initial IPO process.

This event explores the role of the company secretary in the IPO preparation process, highlights the challenges and shares experiences to identify solutions to those challenges.

  • The breakfast meetings organised by Hawkamah provide attendees with a great opportunity to meet with peers from leading organisations and exchange ideas on current issues and challenges. A strong panel of industry experts discussing the challenges from different perspectives on ‘How to get the board more engaged’ was most insightful and engaging with enthusiastic audience participation especially in matters regarding diversity and quality of information that is  presented to the board for effective decision making. I look forward to more such events that are organised by Hawkamah

  • There is absolutely no doubt that Hawkamah – as always – has done unmatchable effort in producing its most recent valuable report in association with Diligent about Board Best Practices in the MENA. The discussions that took place in the “Power Breakfast” was so important and insightful; the influx of questions by the quality participants and the valuable answers of the quality panelists is a clear proof of Hawkamah continued success in such events. 

    Yasser Al Dabach – Board Secretary – Ghobash Trading & Investment Group

  • The technical knowledge, insights, case studies and learning provided by the ‘Director Development Program’ are very useful and effective in framing the strategic planning, implementation and delivery phases of growth plans in the difficult economic and geo-political times that we are operating in.

    Hisham Dimashki – CEO - BAP LLC – (associated with GM Trading Companies - Washington DC)

  • The certified Board Secretaries Workshop provided by Hawkamah and Dubai Financial Market is an essential course for learning corporate governance, scope and responsibilities of the board secretary and understanding the governance and disclosure requirements of the Dubai Financial Market and the Securities and Commodities Authority. It is a practical course which combined recent best practices and key learning lessons. I would highly recommend it for people involved in corporate governance and in particular in a listed company.
