Mike Taverner and Jenni Connolly, Australian Business Volunteer Skilled Business Professionals (SBPs), conducted a training program on Lihir Island to improve business governance for local business owners and company directors. The training has just wrapped up after two sessions in July and August.
The purpose of the Better Business Governance training program is to provide participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively manage board meetings, enhance business governance practices, and clarify roles and responsibilities within a company. This program covered best practices for conducting productive board meetings, understanding the separation of roles between board directors and management staff, and other vital aspects of effective corporate governance.
Overall, this initiative aims to empower Lihirian business owners and directors with the tools and insights they need to make informed decisions and foster better governance within their organisations. This program is supported by our partner Newcrest Mining.
