“I thought the course was enlightening and very rich in content. I particularly liked the balance of case study analysis with emphasis on a NED’s key responsibility. It was well structured and I’m sure I speak on behalf of all those who were present, when I say that the course offers a great deal of value to any aspiring or even existing NED who wants to make a success of their role”
