Understand what your job as a Board Director is. Do not underestimate what your responsibilities are and what Corporate Governance is all about when you do sit on a Board. Make sure you do the Diploma in Corporate Governance as there are way too many Board Directors with little or no knowledge of what is essential to be a competent Board Director

Member Spotlight #7 – Leslie Rance
