Boardroom resilience is the focus of the 2019 ICSA Jersey Annual Conference

Jersey, 2 April 2019 – ICSA: The Governance Institute’s annual conference in Jersey is this year addressing the theme of ‘Building Board Resilience’. Taking place at the Royal Yacht Hotel on 2 May, the conference will focus on the importance of creating effective boards that are fit for the future and can ensure that Jersey retains its place on the global stage as a champion of good governance.

“As a leading financial services centre, Jersey’s business activities are under constant scrutiny, and it is important that effective boards are in place to ensure that Jersey upholds the high standards of governance that have been set as the benchmark for best practice,” says Robert le Corre, Chair of ICSA’s Jersey Branch.

“Fortunately we have many excellent governance professionals on the island who are uniquely positioned to advise directors on governance, risk and compliance matters. This is why this year’s conference will be addressing important areas of focus around director integrity and competence, board evaluation and board dynamics, as well as covering business critical issues, such as emerging technologies, financial crime and ensuring that directors get the right information.’

Alongside speakers from the Jersey Financial Services Commission, Bailiwick Consulting, Bedell Cristin, Board Intelligence, iCompli and ICSA, delegates will also get to meet incoming ICSA chief executive Sara Drake, who is due to take over from outgoing chief executive Simon Osborne at the start of July.

Places can be booked online here.
