Part of my motivation for establishing my consultancy was to allow clients to work closer with me than was possible in a traditional legal practice (while still remaining my independence). In the second semester of 2007 I decided to look at life from the company secretary’s point of view: I enrolled in "Company Secretarial Practice and Meetings" as part of Chartered Secretaries Australia’s Graduate
Diploma in Applied Corporate Governance.
I met some very interesting people and passed the subject (assessment was a 3000 word assignment and a 3 hour exam). The course gave me a different framework for approaching practical problems, which my clients will benefit from.
I’ve decided to add some of my notes to my collaborative compliance wiki. You’re welcome to look at them or expand or comment on them.
