Speaker: Nina Searle, Corporate Partner

As a founder and entrepreneur you no doubt fulfil a number of different roles in any given day, but do you know which decisions you make as the owner of your business and which you make as a director of the company? Do you know the duties that directors owe to their company, shareholders and more widely under the legal framework that govern their role? This interactive workshop will guide you through the aspects of a director's role, and how to comply with the legal responsibilities of being a director, as well as answering any questions you may have about the role and the division of responsibilities within a company.
