Governance Training Course Gives Directors, Executives 'Essentials' They Need To Succeed

SAN DIEGO, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Since directorship is increasingly complex and has ever-expanding responsibilities, Corporate Directors Forum's Governance Academy is offering a two-day training course geared toward expanding directors' boardroom competencies, confidence and personal network.

"The Essentials of Corporate Directorship" training course, held May 12-13 at the University of San Diego, will be an interactive, dynamic learning experience led by nationally respected directors and boardroom leaders who "bring the boardroom experience to life" by actively engaging attendees, drawing from real-life experiences and including relevant, recent business developments. 

Lead instructors include:

  • Julia R. Brown, director, Targacept Inc.; Biodel Inc.; Cleveland BioLabs Inc.

"After a successful event last year, we're bringing this program back – it's a great opportunity to invest in yourself and get hands-on education you can use," said Linda Sweeney, executive director of Corporate Directors Forum.  "We believe better directors make better boards, and our purpose is to help directors be better equipped to thrive in an increasingly complicated, regulated and rapidly changing business climate."

The program is aimed toward aspiring and newer directors, experienced directors who understand the critical need to stay current, business leaders, C-level management, general counsel, and key board advisors.
