Attendees of the IC-A Professional Development Programme for Directors said:

“I recommend the IC-A Programme to any current or future Board Director of listed companies or issuers of securities”.

“As Secretary of the Board of Directors and Head of the Legal Department of a holding company issuing securities, I believe that following a programme such as IC-A’s “Good Corporate Governance” provides key knowledge on matters relating to the duties and responsibilities of Board members, as well as the institutional investors’ view of corporate governance and a good insight into the more practical aspects of being a member of a Board of Directors”.
