This option has been developed to solve a problem that affects all public courses. Normally, these only run once a minimum number of places have been booked which means you have to wait before making travel arrangements. This new option guarantees 5 days CPD accredited training, documentation, lunch and refreshments, a 128Gb Apple iPad® with a copy of the course documentation, and a guided city tour. Most importantly, it also guarantees that the course will run, so you can make your travel arrangements without waiting for us to reach the minimum numbers normally required.

Event Details

This course explores practical approaches to developing strategic thinking skills and implementing a strategic management process. It develops a deeper understanding of corporate governance, covering the strategic role of the board, the rights of institutional shareholders and the approach of the company towards risk. We combine these two aspects of management and leadership to develop an integrated view of corporate governance, corporate strategy, business strategy and strategic risk management.  

Our evidence-based and highly practical training approach helps professionals to improve their strategic thinking ability and increase their confidence in fulfilling governance responsibilities.

We take on current relevant dilemmas and provide robust tools to support your continuous learning.

Who should attend?

Board directors in an executive or non-executive role, senior managers, active investors, portfolio managers and analysts, regulators, financial journalists, and lawyers who:

  • Have, or will have, the responsibility to translate organisational strategy into effective performance to deliver results. 
  • Desire to better understand the differences between operational management roles and strategic leadership roles in areas such as thinking skills, planning approaches, and priorities.
  • Need to develop a deep understanding of international corporate governance best practice and introduce that into international organisations.
  • Assess companies for their long-term success and potential to increase value for stakeholders.


Some key outcomes reported by delegates who have attended this course include:

  • More clarity about the elements of direction and strategy such as: Purpose, mission, strategy, goals, key result indicators, vision and values
  • Better appreciation of the elements of direction and governance, such as: accountability, stakeholder management, transparency, leadership, and risk management
  • Deeper understanding of universal principles to steer companies on behalf of the owners
  • Insights into the reasons why conflicts between strategic leaders and operational managers are inevitable and how to resolve them so the conflict is healthy and productive
  • Understanding of the difference between corporate and business strategy, appreciation of the importance of the idea of “competitive strategy“ and where new ideas fit
  • Better understanding of personal strengths as a strategic thinker, leader and manager and areas for further development


The course provides an opportunity to build on your existing managerial skills, knowledge and experience. The course uses a mixture of short theory explanations, group discussions, individual work, exercises, presentations, video clips, case studies, problem- solving and feedback sessions to provide an interesting, varied and stimulating learning experience that suits a range of learning styles.
Participants learn in an interactive workshop environment how to handle their director roles and responsibilities and achieve greater impact in their board work. The opportunity is given to address specific client situations in the form of individual yet anonymised case studies. The course leaders have extensive qualifications and experience working with clients in many industries on strategic management and corporate governance in emerging markets. During preparatory steps an understanding of current corporate issues and individual concerns is captured and used to focus the workshop content. A comprehensive handbook, emerging Markets guide, and a toolkit for follow-on work ensure the learning success for all delegates.
