Good Governance: A Practical Approach


Do you know if your standards of governance are up to scratch? Do you know at what point your governance issue becomes a legal issue? Do you find it hard to identify the legal risks in the governance issues you face?

Come and explore these questions in a workshop facilitated by senior local government lawyer Anthony Quahe and well-known former local government CEO Neil Hartley. Anthony and Neil’s clear and engaging styles make the content interesting and easy to digest.

Who is this workshop designed for?

Local government CEOs, councillors and officers who have statutory compliance authorities.

What will I learn?

You will learn how to approach your governance matters so that legal issues are identified, and you can then be confident in your decision making.

​Using examples and case studies from real life scenarios, you will learn the following, and more:

  • How liquidated damages clauses in contracts support your governance goals
  • How to approach a series of small contracts under the local government Regulations with confidence
  • How the quality of a delegations register connects both your governance and legal problems
  • How to develop a statutory compliance process using our Decision-Making Guide

This workshop also provides an ideal opportunity to do some networking with other local government CEOs, councillors and officers over lunch at the Parmelia Hilton.

Places strictly limited.
