Showcase events provide trainers and training organizations with opportunities to discuss and market their recently endorsed training courses and certifications. Showcase events are free, one hour, facilitated online events which are open to the public. These events also provide attendees with opportunities to ask questions to better understand the training which will be provided. If you have a training course or certification which is globally applicable and would like to have it endorsed by the Good Governance Academy and discussed at a Showcase event, please get in touch.
