About us

Yorkshire IoD is committed to supporting our 1300 members through director development and the lobbying of key decisions makers in the region and nationally.

Through our four active branches in North, South, East and West Yorkshire we represent members interests at the highest level and  have been responsible for attracting some of the most influential and aspirational speakers in the UK to the region. Additionally our Young Directors are working across the region to represent the leaders of the future entrepreneurship. We encourage healthy debate, ask our members what their key issues are and seek to feed those back to make a real improvement to the business environment.

We are working with the region's universities to promote our IoD student membership. Yorkshire has secured earlier this year a pilot for apprentices to have access to the IoD's student membership programme to be launched in the Autumn.

Our Regional Director, supported by the administrative team from the hub in Leeds, works for our four branches to deliver a series of high profile events that have attracted national media attention, yet offering valuable networking opportunities for our members.
