A testimonial 

"I was able to take lessons from this workshop and immediately adapt them to my work.The input from other participants and Hilary and Mark, our facilitators, was honest, very informative and focused. The case studies and other practical elements were not only valuable, they were actually engaging and fun! Anyone attending the workshops, including members of Governing Councils and Boards of Directors, would get keener insight into many of the key elements of academic governance for Australian higher education providers" Professor John Jenkins, Chair of Academic Board, TOP Education Institute
