Overview   

"Culture eats strategy for breakfast!" What does this quote have to do with company secretarial duties? Whenever corporate scandals, shady dealings and accounting irregularities surface, blame is usually assigned to the highest ranking official, but one has to ask, "What about the company secretary?"  

The role of the company secretary has evolved from that of note-taker at board meetings to gatekeeper in corporate governance. Even the best laid out strategy will amount to nothing if the culture within the organisation is to turn a blind eye to rule-breaking and harmful behaviour.
