Combined, our two speakers have more than forty years of corporations in the U.S. and abroad, making this the ideal program for those learning about corporate governance for the first time, and those deepening their knowledge of the subject.
As experts in corporate governance, Michel and Patrick will speak on the importance of responsible corporate management and best practices in the field. They will share their professional experiences in the business world and facilitate a conversation on this important topic that impacts all of us consumers, professionals, and global citizens.
