The good news is he is on the mend and we expect to see him out and about soon. His recovery is something I am watching with admiration and love’’, Lucy said. She also indicated that indicated that Mr Brogden will continue in his role as Lifeline’s Chairman.
Mr Brogden said: “AICD plays a vital role in the development of corporate governance policy, company director knowledge and talent. I am pleased to have made a contribution to the organisation over the last two years.
