11th Annual Board Secretary Conference: Innovation Meets Governance

This event was held on Tuesday 16 - Thursday 18 April 2019

With the growing age of digital disruption, the board secretary plays a key
role in advancing corporate governance and is vital to the efficiency and
effectiveness of the board for the smooth running of the company.

technology and trends.
