Hawkamah’s sister institute, Mudara Institute of Directors launched its flagship Director Development Programme (DDP) here expanding its regional footprint. The DDP is a structured four-part programme designed and accredited by the Global Corporate Governance Forum, regionalized by Hawkamah Institute for Corporate Governance, and delivered by Mudara Institute of Directors. The Amman programme held during 23-25 September, 2012 at Le Meridien Hotel focuses on corporate governance and the role of the board.
“The flagship programme we are offering in Amman is designed to inform and promote professional directors serving regional boardrooms. Armed with case studies, live voting, and group interaction, this programme has been offered to over 200 directors all over the region serving close to 1,000 boards. It is our hope that with the active engagement of directors in such development activities, we are able to change the terms of board engagements in the region towards better and more effective corporate governance practices,” said Nick Nadal, Head of Mudara, Institute of Directors.
Mr Jamal Al-Doqah, Executive Manager for Compliance, Housing Bank for Trade & Finance: “Organisations are responsible for all the stakeholders (i.e., the society, the state, regulators, employees and shareholders) and the way to accomplish the organisation’s objectives, lies in attaining the satisfaction of all stakeholders, and the way this is done, we are seeking the expertise of Hawkamah/Mudara.”
Dr Mazen Al-Bashir, Board Member, Bank of Jordan: “In this era which is characterized with speed in everything, and although we are exercising our roles and jobs with the best of our ability, one needs to reflect on one’s own practices and experiences, and get into dialogue with compatriots and experts in this field in a protected environment, not forgetting that in this field of work it is more than multidimensional and complicated. Every now and then, we need to go back to the drawing board and also to compare notes.
