Corporate Governance Workshop

Corporate Governance: A Global Perspective to Best Practices

Presented by Richard C. Powers, Academic Director, Directors Education Program (Canada)

This CMA-hosted workshop is ideal for business leaders who are currently part of a board or will be joining one in the near future.  Increased responsibility and accountability have been placed on board members in recent times and this workshop presents a great opportunity for all leaders to get up to speed on current best practices and to gain an international perspective on the topic.  The international perspective of this workshop is especially important to business leaders who are involved in the Barbados offshore sector.  The workshop is also beneficial to leaders in the not-for-profit sector.
