ICMA International is officially approved by SECP to conduct Directors’ Training Program (DTP).
Since June 2012, ICMA International has so far conducted several
DTP programs in different cities and awarded certificates to over hundred Board of Directors,
in addition to Chief Financial Officers, Chief Internal Auditors, and Companies Secretaries of Listed Companies.
In the course of this program you will learn the best practices of corporate boards,
how to leverage your skills to effectively lead, assemble and analyze the right
level of information, rise to the challenges of changing times and effectively align
the interests of individuals, organizations and society.
Shareholder Activism :
In this session, you will examine the recent increase in shareholder activism and
the controversies surrounding it. This session will provide a historical examination
of activism and review whether activists have a short- or long-run orientation in
Board Oversight and Spotting the Warning Signs of Management Failure :
Boards of directors are charged with oversight of companies, and a key component
of that is risk assessment — which has become particularly vital in recent years.
While there are many aspects of risk that are important, the one set of factors
that business overseers tend not evaluate carefully is the strategy, leadership,
and process attributes of companies.
Director Liability Risk :
The goals of this session are to reconcile the divergence between perceptions of
personal out-of-pocket liability risk for outside directors and the reality of that
risk. We will explain how directors can ensure that their companies’ directors and
officers liability insurance policies and indemnification arrangements provide appropriate
protection, and describe the board’s monitoring roles.
Social Studies: Why Social Media Matters for Boards :
Social media has fundamentally changed the ways in which companies and customers
interact, creating both new opportunities and new risks for businesses. This session
develops a framework for thinking about social media from the perspective of a board
CEO Succession Planning :
Surveys of corporate boards indicate that only about one-third of all boards have
developed a detailed CEO succession process, even though directors uniformly acknowledge
that managing CEO succession is a fundamental duty.
Recent Developments in Financial Reporting :
This session will cover impending and proposed changes to financial reporting —
for example, in the areas of revenue recognition, accounting for leases, and accounting
for financial instruments.
The program is suitable for Board Members as well as top management including Managing
Directors, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Executive Officers, Chief Operating Officers,
Secretaries to the Boards of Directors, Legal Advisors, Company Secretaries and
Corporate Governance Executives of listed companies who envision moving into a director's
role in future.
The program fulfills the criteria specified for Director’s Training Program under the Code of Corporate Governance and is also endorsed by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP).
The program incorporates a blend of real life case studies, experiential learning exercises, local success stories and interactive discussions providing the participants a distinctive learning experience which is the hallmark of ICMA International.
