Corporate Governance is a practical guide to current governance issues following major legislative changes in Europe and the US (including the UK's Companies Act 2006 and the US's Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002), all of which have serious implications for directors, board members, and advisors of public and private organisations.

Studies have shown that a company’s share price is often linked to how well governed the company is, providing board members with a strong financial incentive to maintain good corporate governance practices. Yet what may constitute good governance will vary across different countries and companies, and there is no 'one size fits all' model of corporate governance.

Corporate Governance will help you to become familiar with the principles and practice of good governance appropriate to your company, enabling you to uphold those standards that will improve your corporate reputation while providing reassurance to market regulators. For directors of companies of all shapes and sizes, this is essential reading, and will answer all your questions on what good corporate governance means for you, your company’s reputation and its share price.
