The Governors’ Program

What is the Governors Program?

The Warren Centre’s Governors Program provides a monthly lunchtime presentation in a private setting that affords the opportunity to gain early insider access to discussions about key business issues. Each briefing links like-minded executives facing similar challenges from a broad spectrum of engineering and technology-related businesses.

The Program allows some of the most established leaders and innovative minds in industry to mingle in a relaxed environment and to discuss current developments of vital relevance in the context of their respective businesses.
