Becoming director of a company is easy. All you need is to be appointed by the shareholders, to accept that appointment – and to not be a person disqualified from being a director under the Companies Act. Simple. But with that appointment comes significant duties and obligations – enforceable by significant penalties including the possibility of imprisonment under various Acts.
This is the first Business Owners Forum event for 2014 – and here are the panellists, who will dissect this topic from their own point of view:
Bruce Sheppard – a non-politically correct agent provocateur, founder of the New Zealand Shareholders’ Association and director of several New Zealand companies.
Damien Grant – insolvency practitioner, director of Waterstone Insolvency Limited and a party to numerous court cases that have addressed the questions of director’s duties and liabilities.
Mark Wynne – a professional investor and director – and veteran of Fonterra in Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore leading Fonterra’s charge in the Asean region.
This event will be held at the BNZ Partners facility on Constellation Drive, North Harbour at 5:30pm on Thursday 20 February 2014 – and will run through to 7:30pm on the night.
As always for Business Owners Forum events, this session will be free of charge and completely free of sales pitches from the supporters or the panelists. And there will be pizza, beer and wine to lubricate quality discussion.
Business Owners Forums are held monthly – alternating between Whangarei, Albany and Newmarket venues. This event will be repeated in Newmarket on Wednesday 19 March.
