Corporate Governance is everyone’s business, Governex is the next generation governance training platform
Only 10% of Australian businesses currently have a structured governance program in place, despite the many benefits good governance brings – including cultural, financial and social benefits. We asked why, and the answer was ‘accessibility’ – with time and cost factors cited as the biggest barriers to entry.
Governex, the flagship suite of corporate governance courses by Global Governance Initiative (GGI), launched this week to support executives, directors and boards in their governance learning journey.
“In creating Governex, we wanted to take a fresh approach so we could engage more people in the governance conversation,” said GGI Founder and Managing Director Brad Sherringham. “Only 10% of Australian businesses currently have a structured governance program in place. We asked why, and the answer was ‘accessibility’. Good governance is linked to improved business performance and outcomes, so there is a huge opportunity available to businesses. If the barriers to entry are removed they can engage.”
“As a result, we’ve spent two years researching and developing Governex to meet the needs of the next generation of directors. Content is structured and written in the context of the current business environment and priorities, so is very practical.”
The six courses in the Governex suite explore the nuances of governance. Through current real-life case studies Governex explores what good governance looks like and how it can be applied in business. The mobile-friendly courses have been developed to be accessible and engaging and support learning anywhere, any time in a go-with-you format. With its free and low-cost governance tools, Governex is unlike any governance tool seen to date and provides unprecedented access to leading governance resources.
Joining the GGI Community is complimentary, as is access to the first course of the series, ‘Governance and You’. To continue the learning journey through Governex costs $770 for full access to six courses that can be completed almost anywhere, on any device at any time. The courses are a mix of text, videos, podcasts and current real-life case studies – combined to increase engagement and learning outcomes across the six course areas:
