Foundations of Directorship   The Foundations of Directorship workshop is hands-on and experiential. Taking place over 2 days, participants are presented with contemporary issues and challenges that boards in the GCC are faced with and, through discussions and pragmatic experience-sharing, faculty and participants explore and analyze potential solutions, tools and effective practices.

Mastering the Boardroom   Mastering the Boardroom is aimed at those directors who have completed the Foundations of Directorship workshop. Through a series of case studies and panel discussions with practitioners and faculty, participants will develop the skills required to take on more senior roles (e.g., chairman, vice chairman, committee chair) and enhance their personal effectiveness and contribution to the board.
