  • CGI Webinar: 'The changing role of the governance professional post-Covid'

    [VIEW ON-DEMAND]
    On Thursday 8 October, we hosted our global webinar on 'The changing role of the governance professional post-Covid'. We were fortunate to hear from four governance professionals, on whether they thought the role has changed since the pandemic hit. Whilst the experiences were a little different in each case, all our panelists (and many attendees) agreed that it has created opportunity. It was also widely agreed that this is a pivotal moment for the profession in that if ever there is an extreme need for governance, that time is now. 

    If you were unable to join us live, or you were and you simply want to view it again, you can now access the recording on-demand here.

    Why not then review the session wrap-up over in our discussion forum, and share your own thoughts on the key questions raised during the webinar?
