Capacity Building

We run a range of courses and workshops on specific aspects of Corporate Governance.

Best practice in corporate governance is continuously evolving, and it’s therefore essential that owners, executives, and directors stay abreast of the latest developments to maintain a competitive edge. This is of particular importance to businesses that are legally required to provide development opportunities for their board.


MEIoD offers a number of capacity building programs specifically tailored to meet the individual needs of a range of company types and structures. Each course focuses on offering practical advice and recommendations which can be implemented to improve company performance and foster growth.

 

Each of our programs can be delivered in person, online, or using a blend of the two models, depending on what best fits the requirements and circumstances of the individual client.


Programs currently on offer include:
