Carol Hansell’s Corporate Governance for Directors addresses the current issues facing directors in this thoroughly updated new version of her book What Directors Need to Know: Corporate Governance, on which thousands of directors have relied.
 
To give directors the tools to make tough decisions in the new governance environment, the author taps into some of the best practices in corporate governance from across Canada and the U.S. 
 
Corporate Governance for Directors fully explains:
  • The basics of being a director
  • The relationship between board members and management
  • The governance rights of shareholders and their relationship with the board of directors
  • Management structure and roles
  • Specific issues for Crown corporations and not-for-profit corporations
  • Distinctions between Canadian and U.S. law and practice
  • The evolution of governance in Canada
  • Current issues such as climate change, privacy, cybersecurity risks, diversity issues, and the #metoo movement – an understanding of which is necessary for informed decision-making
In a “Cases and Crises” section, Carol catalogues 30 of the most important governance events in Canada in the last 15 years that have been key to the development of corporate governance in Canada.
 
Corporate Governance for Directors presents complex concepts in an engaging and easily understood manner. The underlying foundations of modern governance are examined, including independent directors, audit committees, and executive compensation disclosure.

The impacts of global trade and climate change on the environment in which businesses operate, and issues of privacy, cybersecurity risks, diversity issues, and business opportunities, require well-informed corporate decision-making.
