“The Governance Coach virtual Introduction to Policy Governance Course has been immensely helpful. As many institutions explore virtual options for delivering courses, The Governance Coach team have done an exemplary job in delivering this course. The complement of video tutorials, case studies and quizzes were fulsome and excellently put together. However the best part of this program is the opportunity to engage with Jannice, review the course materials, ask questions and engage in very meaningful and enlightening discussions. Thank you to The Governance Coach team for their hard work here!”   

Jon Macpherson, Manager of Governance & Policy, Calgary West Central Primary Care Network
