The purpose, content and tone of the Diploma from the Corporate Governance Institute are compelling. The Diploma has really brought to life my understanding of how governance works. I deal with the boards of various companies, and the Diploma gave me whole new insights and a refreshed reference framework for what I do. It sharpens how I approach the work I do on their behalf. Thanks for such a rich opportunity.
