Simon Osborne Presents the “Value of Good Governance”

The Nicosia Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Infocredit Group invite you for coffee with Simon Osborne, Chartered Governance Professional, UK, on Tuesday, November 26th at 9am at the Offices of the Nicosia Chamber of Commerce and Industry, 1st floor, Chamber Building.

Good governance is the cornerstone of sustainable growth in organisations as it relates to the smooth operation and control of a company with a view to achieving its long-term strategic goals.

Today’s highly competitive business climate forces businesses to develop more innovative methods of governance, thus ensuring that they stay focused on their business strategy and long-term goals in a globalized market. Good governance plays a significant part in achieving this.
