Board Leadership Core Programme

Loading Information

The Board Leadership Programme has arisen out of the recognition that there is a critical need in South Africa to enhance the opportunities for learning and development of directors and company secretaries (current and aspirant) in private and public companies as well as state owned organisations.  This programme exposes participants to the latest thinking on board leadership, while equipping participants with the necessary procedural and process skills in the increasingly difficult area of boardroom interaction, leadership and decision making.

Additional information

The focus is on learning the technical aspects with faculty using appropriate case studies (local and international). The process aspect is driven by current board members who candidly share their experiences and knowledge. This creates a real-time learning experience, enabling you to better understand and manage your role back in the work environment.  ​
