Leading corporate governance consultant Julie Garland McLellan will lead a one-day Master Class at the 2nd Corporate Governance Asia Conference to be held May 13-15, 2009 in the Lion City.

Julie will work with attendees to explore corporate governance issues particularly relevant for the Asian market by developing four hypothetical case studies. These case studies will cover the following areas:
         Joining a Board
         International joint ventures
         Listing multinational companies
         Addressing fraud or other problems

"The value of this workshop is that it will be based on practical, real life situations in which the delegates will have enough experience to be able to talk about these issues," says Julie. "The case study approach is extremely engaging, and Iím looking forward to guiding a very rich discussion."

For more information on programs delivered by Julie in Australia, two outstanding governance mentor programs include:

The Board Excellence Program is for the benefit of an active director and provides a safe forum for a self-directed investigation of the routes to performance improvement and the enhancement of governance abilities. It allows an individual to access current ideas about best practice and discuss personal and organisational issues with a specialist mentor.

The Board Readiness Program is for the benefit of a future director and is a confidential coaching and mentoring program that covers all aspects of developing a career as a company director. It includes modules on setting goals, networking, director's CVs, work environment preferences, due diligence, and progressing one's board career by targeting appropriate companies.
