CGF's Governance Beyond Boards® Interventions - Winners & MAD Donation (26 Jul '10)
The Governance Beyond Boards® Interventions 2010 were rated highly by the almost 150 delegates in attendance, followed by a closing cocktail and networking ceremony at the IBM Gauteng head office, being CGF's anchor tenant of the Interventions.
The networking function was attended by many of the delegates, including some of CGF's partners of these Interventions. The event included a lucky draw of two fabulous prizes where Deon van Staden from Bidfreight Management Services drew the Exclaim ERM software prize worth R46 000, and Michael Boyns from Metmar Limited drew the Lenovo® Thinkpad® laptop prize worth R6 500. CGF also donated a cheque of R10,000.00 to the Make a Difference (MAD) Foundation, which is chaired by Francois Pienaar and focuses on providing academically talented students, from less fortunate backgrounds, with educational opportunities.
Getting the Interventions off the ground required tremendous support, and CGF wanted to deliver the one-day Interventions that would be significantly different to the routine approaches adopted by the training and conferencing industries in South Africa.
