Great boards are committed to continuous development.
Every board is unique in its mix of governance knowledge and technical skills. From governance fundamentals for new or aspiring directors to a refresher on good boardroom practice or specific aspects of the role, boards can learn together as a group. In a confidential environment, they can explore their unique challenges with training workshops tailored for them or one of a number of specific topics.
Westlake Governance offers programmes for the whole board, for chairs and for the senior executive team.
All courses are developed and led by Managing Director, Richard Westlake, who has facilitated the Institute of Directors flagship 5-day Company Directors Course for over 15 years and their Chairing the Board course since 2006. He has also developed and run countless other courses and workshops for boards, tailored to a board’s specific needs.
