Directors’ Executive Forum 2017

SquareLink Botswana and Brefi Group UK are collaborating to launch a Directors’ Executive Forum in Gabarone, Botswana on Wednesday 26th April.

Concept Note:


“CEOs! Guiding Your Board Toward Better Governance”


In today’s highly competitive and dynamic global environment, directors must be able to create value and drive long term growth, achieve high levels of transparency and accountability, and endure unprecedented scrutiny from investors.

Square Link and The Directors’ Academy invite senior business leaders to join the inaugural ‘Directors Executive Forum’ to be held at Phakalane Golf Estate on 26th April 2017.

This high level forum is open by invitation only to a select group of business leaders, including:

  • Chairmen
  • Chief Executives/Managing Directors
  • Senior Independent Directors
  • Company/Board Secretaries

The Directors Executive Forum will be chaired by Mmasekgoa Masire-Mwamba, former Deputy Secretary General of the Commonwealth and Director of Square Link, presenting Richard Winfield, The UK Independent Authority on Director Development, who will facilitate the forum. Richard Winfield is a systems thinker, thought leader and published author, having made significant contributions in the worlds of public transport planning, executive coaching and director development. He is the founder of international consultancy Brefi Group and creator of The Directors’ Academy, which provides distance-learning resources for directors and boards.

For Chairmen and Senior Board Members it is important to be able to keep up to date with new trends and requirements. The Directors’ Executive Forum provides a private environment in which to share and compare experiences, and draw on the wisdom of other leaders in the region.

As befits the experience and seniority of the participants, the Executive Forum will be highly interactive, with frank discussions to explore issues in depth. Open and constructive contributions will be encouraged by the adoption of ‘The Chatham House Rule’.

Attendance and participation will provide opportunities for high level networking among a select group of colleagues from the region.

The Directors Executive Forum 2017 will take place at Phakalane Golf Estate between 08.00 and 16.00 on Wednesday 26th April 2017.


Join us for this and other events throughout the week; a week of focus, dialogue, briefings and commitment to governance and best practice for Senior Board Directors.
