Directors' Education & Accreditation Program (DEAP)
November 20 - 22, 2018
Savannah Beach Hotel, Hastings, Christ Church, Barbados

The DEAP welcomes experienced and newly appointed directors with management or professional experience. Participants are drawn from a mix of backgrounds including public, Crown and not-for-profit corporations.

Before the session

DEAP is a sharply focused program, delivering critical content in 4 areas, Governance, Finance, Strategy and Risk Management in a condensed period of time. When you register for DEAP, you will receive material 3 weeks in advance of the session to be reviewed ahead time – one document for each of the modules.

During the Session

The workshop will be three days in duration and will be a mix of presentations, discussions, case studies and a quiz (completed in class) for each module. The open session provides a unique opportunity to learn about many different sectors; come prepared to share your experiences and perspectives with the group!

Each day begins at 8:00am with a light breakfast. We break for a provided lunch from 12-1pm and the sessions conclude at 4:30pm. Assessments are done in class, click here for more information on the subjects to be covered.
