The findings of the banking Royal Commission is a wakeup call to directors across all industries and sectors.

The Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry has highlighted various egregious governance failures within the sector and thrown a spotlight on director issues such as the board’s role in challenging management, remuneration, boardroom culture and reporting.

Discussion of these governance concerns and the findings of the Royal Commission Interim Report are relevant far beyond the bounds of the financial sector. With the Final Report due to be submitted to the Governor General by 1 February 2019, and the impending Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, there will likely be major impacts on healthcare governance within the next few years.

Join us at this Directors' Briefing to hear Graeme Samuel AC discuss outcomes of the banking Royal Commission and the implications for corporate governance within the healthcare sector. Graeme will also speak about some of the findings from APRA’s Prudential Inquiry into the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, the greater governance concerns they raise and how healthcare organisations and service providers should respond.
