GBTI Joins as Platinum Sponsor of Corporate Governance Breakfast Seminar

The Private Sector Commission of Guyana and the Caribbean Corporate Governance Institute have partnered under a Memorandum of Understanding to execute a series of joint corporate governance events in 2018. This is in keeping with the mandates of both entities given the importance of effective corporate governance to the region’s commercial landscape.

Both entities are pleased to host the inaugural event, which will be a breakfast seminar on May 23, 2018 at the Guyana Marriott Hotel, Georgetown from 7:00am to 11:30am.

The Commission and the Institute are elated to have The Guyana Bank for Trade Industry (“GBTI”) join as the platinum corporate sponsor of this event.

GBTI is the leading indigenous Guyanese bank with a rich and successful history of over 170 years that began with the establishment of the first commercial bank in British Guiana. The Bank noted that “The Board of Directors and the Management of GBTI are committed to leadership in corporate governance as it repositions the bank for the competitive and digital environment in which it operates. GBTI has designed their corporate governance policies and their practices to ensure that they are focused on their responsibilities to their shareholders and on creating long-term shareholder value. It is critical to collaborate with like-minded organisations that want to preserve and foster the well-being of the region, hence GBTI’s sponsorship for the event.”

This inaugural breakfast seminar is entitled, “The Role of the Director in Good Governance”. The seminar is geared at enabling chairmen, directors and senior executives who support the Board to lead with a progressive perspective using corporate governance as a foundational pillar. The breakfast seminar will be delivered by international faculty member of the Institute and global expert of Corporate Governance, Mrs. Alison Dillon Kibirige. Mrs. Dillon Kibirige, in delivering the keynote address, will be challenging the attendees to consider their perspectives on corporate governance, global trends and what makes an effective board.
