With a Royal Charter since 1906, the IoD is in a unique position to offer a range of services from director qualifications to bespoke board development.

The demands on you as a leader are continuously evolving; you must be one step ahead of the competition, recognise and create opportunities, lead your organisation to success and remain composed throughout challenges. The changing business environment that you and your organisation operate in is complicated. The IoD’s courses, qualifications, board development services, coaching and mentoring can help you and your organisation to achieve success now and in the future.

Courses range from one to three days. Designed from the director's viewpoint, they are led by business experts with outstanding experience of training.
