WORLD BANK AND PSOJ STAGE REGIONAL TRAIN-THE-TRAINER PROGRAMME ON CORPORATE GOVERNANCE BOARD LEADERSHIP
Starting on Thursday, March 19, a group of eighteen trainers will participate in a 3 ½ day regional "train-the-trainer" programme at the Terra Nova Hotel in Kingston. The goal of this highly interactive workshop is to enhance director-training capacity in the region and help participants become familiar with and learn how to use the Corporate Governance Board Leadership Training Resources Kit produced by the World Bank/International Finance Corporation's Global Corporate Governance Forum (the Forum). The Tool Kit was developed to serve the growing need for curriculum and teaching methodologies relevant to corporate governance training. Participants will develop the knowledge base and skill sets needed to lead director education programmes that reflect international best practices adapted to regional trends and country specific needs.
The event, comprising three and a half days of intensive training, will provide trainers with lectures, case studies, and exercises to develop directors' boardroom skills. The programme will encourage participants to share and discuss their own experiences. Trainers will hone their methods for using adult learning techniques.
The workshops will be led by local and international faculty including Anne Molyneux, a consultant in financial market regulation, corporate governance, financial reporting, accounting, audit regulation and practice who is based in the UK, Dr. Mary Jo Larson, Principal of FlexAbility International, based in Costa Rica, Santiago Chaher, consultant to the IFC, based in Washington DC and Sandra Glasgow, CEO of the PSOJ, who was trained by The Forum as a Trainer in the use of the Resources Kit.
Twelve Jamaicans representing public sector agencies, including the Ministry of Finance and The Public Service and the Financial Services Commission, private sector companies and the University of the West Indies will participate in the workshop. Six of the participants hail from Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados representing private sector companies and the UWI's Cave Hill and St. Augustine campuses.
