For the past 21 years, Prof Niamh Brennan has been helping to enhance the standards of corporate governance in Ireland. Firstly, through the Centre for Corporate Governance that she founded at the UCD Quinn School of Business in 2002 and then through the UCD Smurfit executive development diploma in corporate governance which she established in 2004.

Now entering her final year as director of the diploma programme, she reflects on her motivation for setting up the Centre for Corporate Governance. “I had taken on a number of non-executive directorships at the time but what did I know about being a company director?” Brennan recalls. “I realised there were a lot of other people in the same situation and my motivation was to provide training for them when there was no training in place.”
