Governors Program

What is the Governors Program?

The Governors Program is a unique opportunity for senior executives to gain exclusive insights into the macro issues affecting your organisation. From business in Asia to technology and global markets, the Governors Program provides expert insights from leading practitioners that will allow you to maintain a globally strategic outlook.


The program provides a monthly lunch with industry leaders from a range of industries with a focus on engineering and technology. Participation in the program provides direct access to all of The Warren Centre’s activities and events.


Networking with fellow senior executives and gaining insight for the latest innovation and trends yields genuine business dividends. The Warren Centre’s Governors Program provides a unique opportunity for technology facing business leaders to exchange ideas and meet informally in a non-competitive environment with C-level peers from industry, government, finance and academia.
