The importance of an Independent Secretary
Show Notes

How does an independent Company Secretary contribute to a high-functioning Board?  Why would a Board consider recruiting an independent CoSec when they can source this role in-house?  

In today’s video we consider this specialised role from the truly independent perspective, as there are many benefits to an outsourced solution.  A governance professional who can make calls and give advice with courage, from a place of independence, brings a lot of value to a Board.  

Some benefits include improved training, continuity, skills base, a peer for the CEO, board level mindset and strategic outlook.
