Directors must stand their ground with governance | Netwerk24

Thina Siwendu, Judge of the South African High Court: Gauteng local division was the guest speaker at an Africa Directors Programme (ADP) certificate award ceremony recently held in Johannesburg for the class of 2016. Her comments included:

Good corporate governance offers the ability to generate and create, to produce wealth and products. To solve human problems is one of the greatest human endeavours and is an incredible gift of humanity.“The danger to corporate governance is that it is sometimes still seen as an ‘after the fact process’, unrelated to the day to day being of corporate life. This lack of integration in thinking and behaviour has led to many instances of the slowing down of things, or just the ticking of boxes.“The separation between business, politics and the state has narrowed significantly. The common denominator is the constant distant demand for leadership.“Not just any leadership, but ethical, sound and courageous leadership. This is what we need in boardrooms.“In the context in which we operate, we have noticed a trust deficit and a challenge of a social contract that has collapsed.”
