Welcome to 2010
Attention: The Directors/Decision Makers/Management/Shareholders
Welcome to 2010!
Make 2010 the year that you take your business to the next level – to do so ensure that you get your business aligned with the requirements of the New Companies Act and King III Code of Corporate Governance.
“The SINK or SWIM New Companies Act Seminar was very informative, it is good to know which requirements to comply to, there is lots of work to go back and ensure the company complies which is a good thing”. (HR Director –Crane Builders and Repairs)
Can I ask you a couple of questions?
1. As a Director (Manager) do you spend enough time and effort working “ON” your business? Not “IN” your business but “ON” your business! Most Directors simply do not and cannot find the time to be the “architect” and “designer” of their businesses. In the new corporate environment this will prove fatal – all Directors need to understand their roles and responsibilities under the new Companies Act, along with the roles and responsibilities (and avenues for redress) of the other stakeholders in their businesses. Ignore this at your own peril!
2. Are you both a shareholder and a director? How well do you understand that fundamental differences in these roles in your business? Do you actively differentiate between “ownership decisions” and “director decisions”? Part of aligning yourself with the new set of requirements is to better understand these different roles in business and implement processes to regulate the different “mandates” involved.
During 2010 everything you ever knew about how business works in South Africa is going to change. The New Companies Act, aimed at modernising and streamlining the South African business environment comes into effect in the middle of the year. This new Companies Act (together with the KING III Code of Corporate Governance for South Africa – which comes into effect on 1 Mar 2010) impacts every area of business and it is essential for all business people to familiarise themselves with the changes and areas of impact so as to prepare themselves for a whole new way of doing business. Every change creates either a challenge (with associated costs and risks) or an opportunity (with associated benefits). This seminar will provide you with the handles to assess and act on both.
The SINK or SWIM: New Companies Act (Is it still safe to be a Company Director?) Seminars is aimed at helping Directors (Manager and Members of CC’s) come to grips with the challenges in adapting to this new environment – as well as to identify the opportunities that come with the change.

What will the SINK or SWIM: New Companies Act Seminar give you?
- You simply cannot ignore these changes – or leave it up to your accountant or auditor to implement any changes required, the changes are extensive and as a director or decision maker you are liable for knowing and implementing them.
