Frequently Asked Questions 

Our Directors have lots of experience, why is ongoing education necessary?

Well qualified Directors are a real asset, but they need to continue growing as individuals and as a group.  Developing a common understanding and way of implementing governance best practices is critical to the Board and the organization's success. 

What is the arrangement for purchasing the videos?

Your organization purchases individual videos through our online streaming service provider. The videos are then available 24/7 and you can watch them online as many times as you wish - there is no limit.  We consider this an organization license for unlimited use by your Board and employees. 

How should we use these videos?

The videos have been developed to be used as short education sessions that can be run during your Board meetings. We have found that short, focused training followed by a discussion on what changes should be implemented is the most effective way of achieving improvement and change.

Are the topics relevant to my specific organization?

We have developed the videos in a manner that makes them applicable to all types of organizations. The information focuses governance best practices and their implementation in dealing with the current challenges any type of Board must address.
