25 July 2017 Managing Conflict of Interest, Dubai – UAE

25 July 2017
Dubai, UAE

Board members have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the organization that they serve in an ethical manner. Some aspects of good governance, such as the management of a conflict of interest, are based on the circumstances and can involve a subjective assessment. Regulations require directors to declare their interests, so it is important to know how to manage this complex area.

This 1 day interactive workshop will cover:
• What constitutes a conflict of interest
• Case studies and examples of conflicts of interest
• Boards and Directors Roles and Responsibilities in relation to such conflicts
• Legal Duties of Boards
• Dealing with dilemmas: practical steps for managing conflicts of interest
• Global trends and best practices for dealing with conflicts of interest
