In the South African corporate world of entrepreneurship, there are many individuals who serve as directors on boards of companies for the first time but with a limited understanding of their duties, obligations and potential liability. The course will outline the key director’s duties and liabilities under the Companies Act 2008 and King Code IV including:

  • Director’s duties
  • Director’s liabilities
  • Limitation of director’s liability
  • Appointment and removal of directors
  • Disqualification and ineligibility of directors
  • The rules around directors’ meetings

The objective of this course is to provide a big picture overview to new directors about their role and responsibilities under South African law and best practice to ensure that they can embrace this new position “like a boss”.
