The sessions cover the following key themes:

Communicate With Impact & Influence, naturally. Understand and further develop the 'softer skills' which give you the edge in the Board Room and within the organisation. Includes key phrases, persuasion, questioning skills, resilience in conflict conversations.

Collaboration, Commerciality, Communication & You. Practical applications of your Governance skills whilst maintaining and demonstrating your critical Governance technical skills.


Governance Professionals will gain a heightened understanding of how to be that highly valued trusted advisor for their Boards and senior executives, in a way that benefits all within the governance arena. This focus on your value, communication skills, and influencing techniques, will take the expert Governance Professionals to a greater level of contribution, further supporting you in the key role you play within the dynamics of Governance and the Board.
