Professional Development Discounts

As part of GCC BDI’s ongoing efforts to build better director and board capabilities, we are offering our members workshop discounts which they can use whenever they sign up for any of our professional director development programmes.

Our development programmes allow members to develop the core skills of board directors and those who interact with the board, such as board secretaries and senior C-suite executives. Depending on the membership category, members can take advantage of a discount on any of GCC BDI’s open workshops, tutorials and certification programmes.
