SME Governance Health-Check

Ensuring You Have the Right Structure, Processes and Controls

Canada is home to over one million small and medium enterprises (SMEs), which represent the majority of economic output in the private sector. Although corporate governance is often associated with large corporations, effective governance plays a critical role in the support of growth and sustainability in SMEs.

The Institute of Corporate Directors and Grant Thornton invite you to a one-hour webinar focused on the unique governance challenges faced by SMEs. We will identify what appropriate governance means for you and how you might implement and operationalize it. 

JOIN US on December 5 at 2:00pm EST for a health check of your governance structure, processes and controls.

Discussion topics will include: 
  • Unique aspects of SME governance and learning from best practices of public company boards
  • Identifying your ideal board structure, independence, and mandate:
    • Opportunities
    • Pain points
  • Traditional Boards vs. Advisory Boards – which one is right for your organization?
  • How to manage risk, oversee internal controls and meet Board mandates in the absence of regulatory structure
  • Effective succession planning and Diversity on Boards
