Corporate Governance is concerned with the way entities are governed, as distinct from the way businesses within those companies are managed.

Company Secretaries are constantly relied upon by the members of the board for guidance and advise on matters that may relate to the company or to their position as members of the Board.

A CFO is primarily responsible for managing the financial risks of the business or entity. A good CFO is one who can listen, interpret and communicate.
