East of England

About us

The East of England Region comprises five very active and vibrant branches. 
These are Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire (includes Middlesex and parts of South Bedfordshire), Norfolk and Suffolk. The region has an IoD hub in Norwich based within the City College's St Andrew's House.

The East of England hosts a very diverse range of industries, from traditional manufacturing, agriculture, extraction, education and professional services, through to new sectors such as technology, biotech and cleantech. We are equally proud of our heritage and of our world-leading position in fast-moving contemporary industries.

Headed up by Regional Chairman David Sales and Regional Officer Camilla Calverley-Halford, the region has approximately 4,600 members.

We host a very full programme of events, for members and non-members, ranging from networking lunches and dinners to business seminars and social events.

IoD members can also access a range of resources on topics such as business development & strategy, finance, technology and trading overseas by visiting the guiding section of our website.

David, Camilla or any of our branch Chairmen will be delighted to talk to you and answer any questions you may have.
