Chartered Director Program Barbados Nov 2019

Phenomenal Opportunity!

The Chartered Director Program was a phenomenal opportunity to learn the frameworks and knowledge necessary to be an effective director on a board. The other participants in the program were senior members of government, executive management, and board members wanting to improve their skills. There was a mix of people from the Caribbean and Canada. Having it very focused over three days was intense but the instructors were lively and very experienced. The stories made the learning come alive.
