WATSON partners with UBC Sauder School of Business for governance education.

Vancouver, British Columbia – WATSON Advisors—Canada’s largest multi-disciplinary governance firm—announces its first partnership with UBC Sauder School of Business. WATSON’s flagship Governing with Intention™ course will be offered as part of UBC Sauder’s Executive Education programs.

Governing with Intention™ equips directors and management with practical tools and clear guidance to address specific governance challenges. Through their work with boards, WATSON is witnessing firsthand how boards are trying to navigate the many grey areas of governance.

“There is more focus being paid to good governance and more and more executives are seeking governance education to top up their professional experience,” said Suzie Cho, WATSON Academy Practice & Learning Lead, “It helps them better fulfil their director duties and in turn helps their organizations perform better.”

UBC Sauder Executive Education has been at the forefront of offering programs that meet executives’ most pressing professional needs. “We see governance knowledge as a natural complement for many of our executives,” said Anson Tung, Director, Open Enrolment, “And WATSON’s approach means our executives can put their learning into immediate practice.”

Governing with Intention™, July 25-26, 2019, UBC Robson Square.
