Corporate Governance. Overview, principles, and best practices


Facilitator: Narcisa Oprea - Lawyer/Consultant/Trainer, Partner - Schoenherr

Corporate governance essentially involves balancing the interests of a company's many stakeholders, such as shareholders, senior management executives, customers, suppliers, financiers, the government, and the community.

In the increasingly complex economic context characterized by a growing uncertainty and mistrust, companies must ensure business continuity within optimal parameters, which implies a good organization, agility, and risk management, thus sending a message of trust and stability to economic and social partners. These strategic objectives can only be achieved through a modern management system, transposed into an efficient framework of corporate governance.
