Sharing Benefits with Others

Corporate Participating Members can share their discount privileges with others so that they can experience our programs on a trial basis. For instance, corporations may wish to share their training discounts with new outside director candidates, or group subsidiaries; or, fund managers may wish to share discounts with portfolio companies (one time per company).  Similarly, subject to terms pre-agreed with BDTI, executive recruiters can share discounts on our standard full-day programs with quality director candidates introduced by them who have not yet been approved at the AGM.  Corporate Participating Members must notify BDTI in advance and obtain approval.
