Learning & Collaboration Webinars

We are connected globally, not only through our Governance Advisory Council but with board leadership internationally. The purpose of our webinars is to share insights and innovative thinking that you can, in turn, bring back to your boardroom.  Our experts will prove to be a great resource and will make you aware of the topics that are confronting boards throughout the world.


Board in a Box is comprehensive, up to date online resource available for chairs, directors of boards, company secretaries and those responsible for governance at all levels.  Whether you simply need to refer to earlier learnings, or are looking to enhance your knowledge in a particular topic (for the next board meeting, perhaps), we provide members with a huge range of tools and applications that will supplement your knowledge.

Included in this suite of toolkits are:

  • FAQs that will enable staff to find answers to everyday governance issues quickly.
  • Access to resources to ensure staff stay current on compliance and regulatory issues.
  • Access to the latest trends in governance as informed by our research.
  • Access to the latest documentation and policies that boards require.
  • Access to practical resources

We will also provide tried and tested tools that will help to improve the performance of your board. These will include for example:

  • 360-degree performance assessment tools for directors and the CEO
  • A strategic planning process and support tools
  • Virtual meeting tools and methodologies
  • Reporting and presentation tools

These tools are real-world, practical solutions, packaged and specific to your needs. 

Whatever your challenge, we will have a methodology, template, policy or tool to help you address these challenges and opportunities clearly which in turn help to refine board processes.

Continuous Professional Development

Recognition matters when you are Certified.  At The Corporate Governance Institute, we provide you with a combination of approaches, ideas and techniques that will help you manage your own learning and growth.
