Webinars on Wednesdays

with Richard Winfield



You don't need to travel for workshops and training programmes any more. There are lots of opportunities to study on-line - gaining access to expert teachers and thought leaders.


The Global Governance Academy offers such programmes, designed for busy executives and those for whom English is a second language. Some you purchase, some you subscribe to, and some are free.


Webinars on Wednesdays is a free service offered in good will. I hope you will take advantage of them. You can access the archive of webinars by subscribing to the CPD Programme for Corporate Governance.


The webinars are run four times a day so that, wherever you are, you can choose a time that suits you best.
