Power Breakfast: Role of the Company Secretary and Governance Professional in an IPO @ The Gate Village

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.

Testimonials

  • 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.
