Dominique Hogan-Doran SC will address the Women on Boards' Sydney Directors' Circle series on the topic of 'conflicts of interest' in the context of company directorship. This event is for WOB members and their guests who are already serving as Non Executive Directors to take part in an informed, intelligent and confidential discussion.
Discussion Topic: Conflicts of Interest
Unresolved conflicts of interest are a huge risk area for directors. Apart from contravening your legal duties, a director who does not resolve conflicts of interests appropriately is risking their reputation as a director.
Dominique Hogan-Doran SC will speak to the topic for 20-30 minutes and then lead a general discussion followed by a table based hypothetical. The group will then come back together to share thoughts and views. Substantial canapes and drinks will be provided throughout the evening, including during the table discussion.
