There will also be a session on mindfulness with Emma Desprès, yoga teacher, author and founder of Beinspired Yoga.
Teresa Le Couteur, Chair of the Institute’s Bailiwick of Guernsey Branch, commented: "The pandemic blindsided businesses around the globe when it hit and since then businesses have been grappling with a whole host of measures to steer a path through. Now that businesses are no longer in crisis mode, many are looking to the future and contemplating what is needed to ensure long-term success.  
“This year’s conference focuses on how companies can create a sustainable future. We will be considering how companies can ensure authentic environmental, social governance and examining the role that chartered company secretaries play in supporting listed companies. 

"In addition, we will be discussing cyber risk, the best ways to invest in the wake of Covid-19, the impact of virtual board and committee meetings on effective governance, and the best way for companies to harness good governance in order to meet regulatory requirements.”
