Our Happy delegates of our Programs!
Hear from our Online delegates since going on Online about their experience.
A wealth of Governance and related information was presented clearly, the Program was well structured, and in such a manner that all Delegates were fully engaged. There is no doubt that the Program will serve to improve my skills as a Director.
A highly recommended Program which reinforced the fundamental Principles and Best Practices for Good Corporate Governance. Enjoyable, highly beneficial, deep and insightful, a critical and necessary Program for a Director especially in these challenging times.
I enjoyed this course from beginning to end. Dr. Bart was engaging and thorough with explaining the material. The material was not easy to digest but the challenge was satisfying. I would recommend this course any day, it is one of many that motivates you to put all that you’ve learn into play. This course changes your outlook on Governance and gives you the required tools to be effective and efficient on any board.
Due to some challenges occasioned by the Covid -19 pandemic, I almost withdrew from the June 2020 Chartered Director Online Program. The training received during this online program was timely, focused, inspiring, and would facilitate in adding value as a Director. I am glad that I made the sacrifice to attend all the sessions notwithstanding my challenges. Organizations and Directors should make participation at this and similar Governance training programs a HIGH priority in the quest to succeed in the rapidly changing environment.
The Chartered Director on line program was of a very high standard. The information gleaned prove to be very Educational, Informative and Useful. The method of delivery used by the facilitator was excellent. In addition, it was an eye opener and gave me a clearer understanding of Good Governance, and the Roles and Responsibilities of the Board, Directors and Management in fulfilling the mandate of the various Stakeholders. course any day, it is one of many that motivates you to put all that you’ve learn into play. This course changes your outlook on Governance and gives you the required tools to be effective and efficient on any board.
The Chartered Director program presented me with solid grounding in governance, which increased my confidence in my ability to execute and carry out my job tasks under business continuity management and safety leadership. The program provided beneficial frameworks, as well as essential first-hand insights from competent risk directors and specialists, and I acquired a great deal regarding value generation and risk management. I thoroughly appreciated the environment, which promoted a high degree of participation backed by exceptional presentations and content.
I wish to recommend the Directors’ training programme to the leaders or Board/Executive members of all Parastals and Civil Society Organizations and Trade Unions in Saint Lucia. In my humble opinion, the course is a prerequisite for arresting and reversing our “culture of studied indifference to corruption”. It facilitates participants’ comprehension of directors’ fiduciary duties and responsibilities, and explains their liability for not asking “probing questions”. I feel more empowered to ask the probing questions for fulfilling and achieving the organization’s mission, vision, and values.

Thank you to everyone at CGTI for an experience that really has catapulted my vision, for not only our company but also myself, into a place of continued growth and transformation towards truly secure long-term success. The CGI Chartered Director Program is a concise yet comprehensive, highly practical and easily applicable package of learnings, research and resources that equips directors with an invaluable skill set that enables us to effectively discharge our duties with an acutely sharpened perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed the content, classes and discussions and highly recommend it.
Without a doubt the Chartered Director Program will assist in strengthening the good governance effort of Directors whose aim is to focus on corporate strategy and big ticket items. I am indeed so impressed with the training offered that I am looking forward to enrolling in the Chairman’s Course.
I found the Chartered Director’s course to provide practical and cutting-edge learning and development. It is a excellent course chocked full of very useful and interesting content that was well designed and professionally delivered thanks to Dr. Bart and his esteemed colleagues. I would highly recommend Caribbean Governance Training Institute.
It has been an invaluable journey with the Caribbean Governance Training Institute (CGTI). I truly appreciate the Institute’s commitment to excellence, ethical leadership and its role in shaping the next generation of corporate leaders across the globe. For me, the program has been a transformative experience that has enriched my knowledge, skills, and insights needed to excel in Corporate Governance Principles and Practices. The comprehensive curriculum, dedicated faculty, and collaborative learning environment have exceeded my expectations
The C. Dir. program created a highly interactive, engaging, and enjoyable forum for exploring and understanding key concepts of governance best practices and frameworks. The support and experience of their seasoned content experts in the five distinct governance frameworks afforded us access to lessons based on real world practice.
The training program does well clarify the true responsibilities of the Board and the Director, through the real life Board experience of Dr Bart and his fellow presenters, whilst concisely delivering the key tools to be effective in this role. Highly recommended for anyone considering a Board appointment or currently acting in this capacity.
As leaders, it is our paramount responsibility to uphold a fiduciary duty to ensure our organizations consistently maintain the highest standards of compliance. The adherence to compliance not only fosters efficiency but also instills accountability—a combination of crucial attributes necessary to accomplish this indispensable objective. Fortunately, these essential skills can be effectively acquired through the exceptional programs offered by the Caribbean Governance Institute.
During the course, I’ve learnt the importance of understanding your true obligation as a director from a first world point of view. CGTI assisted me in being able to make sound decisions in this 21st century.
From the moment I embarked on this journey, it was evident that I was about to engage in transformative work that would shape me into a true professional. The program not only equipped me with invaluable knowledge and skills but also instilled in me a profound sense of passion for effective governance and leadership.
I am quite grateful to have participated in the three days of intense and instructive training. I now have new information that will assist me in making decisions that are great rather than merely good for the organizations I am a part of. In addition, I learned about the importance of each team member’s roles, responsibilities, and duties. Also, asking questions, which is the single most important obligation of a chartered director, is one of many fundamental principles | learned. I endeavour to put my knowledge to practical use.
I had a warm experience gaining first-class knowledge on Corporate Governance from CGTI. The team of professionals has not only sharpened our approach to being 21st Century Board Directors but provided endless resources as a sturdy foundation and guide. Thank you for a journey that would never be forgotten.

EXCELLENT COURSE! Excellent course especially for the Board of Directors as it is critical to know risk roles and responsibilities and key information about ERM and how it can be tailored to your organization and improve your governance duties and decision-making process.
Winston Laville, Treasurer of BOD, St. John’s Cooperative Credit Union, Antigua
A Vital Corporate Governance Tool Risks are everywhere and can threaten the life of viability of a company or organization. Risk Management needs to be higher up on the agenda for Caribbean companies, which are inherently small and therefore more exposed to risk as well as being less capable of adequate and timely response. This certification program is a vital corporate governance tool.
Colin Murdoch, Ambassador, Office of the Prime Minister, Antigua and Barbuda
VERY IMFORMATIVE The information learned was very informative. I was particularly interested in reputational risk and the role of the Chief Risk Officer. Great Program. I will certainly promote the program
