Roger Gillett, Chairman, Institute of Directors Bermuda Branch, says: “It’s exciting to have reconvened the Institute of Directors Bermuda Branch. Bermuda has a very unique position at the crossroad of the USA and U.K. and regulation is becoming more and more complex so it’s important that Bermuda-based Directors are up-to-speed with the latest developments in corporate governance and directors’ responsibilities. We hope that our educational programme and networking opportunities will provide an avenue for directors to grow their knowledge and skill base.”


The Bermuda branch will celebrate their re-launch with a cocktail party for members tonight at Ascot’s.
