Background

With the increasing focus on entrenching sound corporate governance practices, the role of the company secretary has evolved and transcends the administrative role. The role occupant is expected to provide professional guidance to shareholders, boards, individual directors, management, and other stakeholders, on the governance aspects of strategic decisions. The company secretary is one of the key governance professionals, and a critical link between the board and the organisation. The board looks to the company secretary for professional advise on not only matters of compliance, but also issues relating to establishing a culture of good governance practices. Thus, company secretaries need to have the requisite skills, experience and emotional intelligence in managing relationships, boardroom dynamics and the range of governance and compliance issues to be addressed, in a manner that ensures these practices are implemented, effectively. Therefore, company secretaries must continually enhance their competencies to meet the changing dynamics, what corporate governance practices are needed and why, as well as develop the emotional, cognitive and behavioural experiences to succeed in that role as a means to ensuring good business sustainability.
