Supervisory Board

The public eye is now focused more than ever before on work carried out by supervisory boards. The intensity of supervision has risen, but nevertheless supervisory boards are ever increasingly fulfilling their role as consultants to the board of management as well. Consistent further development of practical work and regulatory framework conditions are characteristic of the activities of corporate controllers. In doing so, they also take on a greater extent of responsibility.

We have introduced PwC Boardroom so that you, as a member of a supervisory body, can concentrate on what is really important. Our supervisory board program is aimed at all members of supervisory bodies – irrespective of the legal form, owner structure and the company's area of business. We offer you a target-oriented range of publications, events and advisory services which are tailored specifically to your information requirements – so that you don't miss anything that is important.

Further Training

The diligent and conscientious responsibilities of the supervisory board include regular further training. This opinion is shared by the government commission "German Corporate Governance Code" which now explicitly recommends further training for supervisory boards. In this respect, it is not only theoretical further training that plays an important role but also – and above all – the personal exchange of practical experience among supervisory board members. The events of PwC Boardroom regularly offer you the possibility among an exclusive group of participants to inform yourself about latest developments, exchange views with other supervisory board members and at the same time expand your supervisory board network.

We also hold individual workshops and seminars for you on relevant topics for supervisory boards. In doing so we respond very individually to your wishes and requirements. You are taking up a new mandate in the near future or contemplating this idea? We can provide you with an overview of supervisory board and committee work in fundamental training courses. You are already a supervisory board member and want to stay up to date or acquire particular expertise in a specific area? We will provide you with in-depth accounting updates and information about current regulatory steps as well as the latest best practices on all aspects of supervisory board work. Whether an exclusive individual discussion or event for the complete board – we have the tailor-made solution for you.


PwC Boardroom also offers you the right tools for fulfilling your engagement: Our bi-monthly newsletter "404", which is available in English, supports supervisory boards and audit committees in their work with latest information. Further publications with practical tips are available in German language.

We would be pleased to assist you or your supervisory board with a lot of other questions as well. Please don't hesitate to contact us.
