It inspired us to start a board...

I attended a Corporate Governance Training seminar with our Chairman in St. Lucia in early 2014. It inspired us to start a board and self-evaluation process of our board and to start a conservation about corporate governance and risk management. I am pleased today that the remainder of our board have joined our Chairman and myself and completed this more advanced version of director training. We are all leaving refreshed and full of ideas to improve our board functions
