The LAW AND BUSINESS: Working Towards Sustainable Development workshop targets individuals at the strategic level of the organizations within both the public and private sectors. It is intended to firstly provide participants with a profound understanding of the administrative framework of conducting business in African, particularly in Nigeria. Secondly, to demonstrate to participants how globalization and the creation of an interconnected global economy is impacting on the said administrative and legal framework and influencing organization change. Thirdly, sensitize participants to the need for corporate social responsibility and the promotion of corporate governance. Fourthly, to highlight the key role of Teams and enlightened Leadership in the creation and sustainability of competitive businesses.
By the end of this training course you will:
- Have a sound understand of the workings of Nigeria’s administrative and legal framework;
- Have an understanding of the macroeconomic considerations for businesses in Nigeria;
- Have an understanding and recognize the urgent need for corporate governance and CSR; and
- Improve their understanding, skills and competencies within the realm of leadership.
Who should attend?
The workshop would, therefore, be of benefit to:
Corporate Entities and Companies, Businessmen and women, Entrepreneurs, Banks and Financial Institutions, Accounting Firms, Consulting Firms, Chambers of Commerce and Business Associations, Professional Bodies, Regulators, Legal Practitioners and Lawyers in banks and financial institutions, Government Ministries, Agencies and Parastatals, Law Enforcement Agencies, the Media and all other interested persons.
The need for professionals with sound education on practical, sustainable business practices is even more so given the interconnectivity of firms, markets, and economies in a globalized world. In such an interconnected world the actions and impact of economic actors in one jurisdiction has far reaching impact in implications in another.
The Post 2015 development agenda further stated, “Sustainable development cannot be realized without peace and security; and peace and security will be at risk without sustainable development.
The new Agenda recognizes the need to build peaceful, just and inclusive societies that provide equal access to justice and that are based on respect for human rights (including the right to development), on effective rule of law and good governance at all levels and on transparent, effective and accountable institutions. Factors which give rise to violence, insecurity and injustice, such as inequality, corruption, poor governance and illicit financial and arms flows, are addressed in the Agenda”.
The workshop is conceptualised and designed against the foregone background that is, an interconnected world with a global development agenda. The workshop would clearly indicate that actions in the areas of law and business undertaken within Nigeria must be in conformity with international laws. This international rules based approach is essential for the promotion of sustainable development.
Where Law intersects with Business and Economics, the most important capital is Intellectual.
With a team of highly experienced facilitators the workshop will deliver cutting edge thinking within the relative disciplines. There will be a strong focus on know-how focusing on the practical experiences of the global facilitators.
