Who should attend?

This course is for people who have already attended the IR regulation and compliance essentials courses and would like an update on changes in the rules and regulations. It would also be useful for others involved in IR, such as company secretaries or finance directors.

The IR Society recommends all practitioners attend this course at least once every two years to ensure that they keep up to date with legal and best practice requirements. 

What will I gain?

  • An overview of the current regulatory themes
  • A solid understanding of forthcoming regulatory changes
  • Updates on best practice in the corporate reporting regime, corporate governance and stewardship 

"This course was the right length and covered all the relevant content. Good to hear other companies' experiences."

"A very clear and well structured course, taking a good sweep across regulatory developments. A useful update and the discussion format worked very well - I would definitely recommend this course to all IROs!"

"A very useful refresher!"
