With the Hayne Royal Commission’s Final Report now handed down and the Aged Care Royal Commission in full swing, the governance community is taking stock. Our most important institutions are experiencing unprecedented scrutiny and there are crucial issues for boards and directors to grapple with.

Please join our CEO and Managing Director Angus Armour FAICD and a panel of experience directors who will lead an interactive discussion on the critical issues for directors post the Banking Royal Commission.

Members will also have the opportunity to provide feedback to Angus on how we can continue to advocate for good governance in light of these major events. What, if anything, does the AICD need to do differently to strengthen the governance environment?

We welcome your involvement and invite you join this robust discussion on issues of vital importance to the director community and the organisations they steward.
