Testimonials

  • “The topic discussed was forward-looking, enlightening and practical. The well-balanced panel considered the next area of governance reform from a broad perspective, with the session covering useful and thought-provoking concepts.”

    Nalika Manjrekar -VP - Group Corporate Governance at First Abu Dhabi Bank 

  • The breakfast meetings organised by Hawkamah provide attendees with a great opportunity to meet with peers from leading organisations and exchange ideas on current issues and challenges. A strong panel of industry experts discussing the challenges from different perspectives on ‘How to get the board more engaged’ was most insightful and engaging with enthusiastic audience participation especially in matters regarding diversity and quality of information that is  presented to the board for effective decision making. I look forward to more such events that are organised by Hawkamah
