Corporate governance is a complex discipline. Even those of us who have built our careers in fields where governance is a necessity might not fully understand everything it encompasses. Moreover, new circumstances and terminologies keep emerging as businesses open shops.
That’s why I think the Institute of Corporate Governance of Uganda (ICGU) should keep visiting the subject and sharing new thoughts amongst its Members through this open forum. Today I would like to discuss the subject of Corporate governance by breaking it down into four simple words: People, Purpose, Process, and Performance.
Dear Esteemed Members,
I am greatly honored and delighted for the opportunity you have offered and entrusted me to take the mantle to serve you as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Institute of Corporate Governance of Uganda for the next three years.
