Annual Report & Accounts 2020

A thriving community facing
the future together

Our Annual Report & Accounts 2020 reflects on a challenging year

We are a community of individual members made stronger through our network – whether pressing the government to do the right thing or helping each other grow and succeed.

The importance of our work came to the fore in 2020 – helping directors and businesses navigate constantly changing regulations, health and safety concerns and commercial challenges.

IoD Director General, Jonathan Geldart, shares his views on four things to think about post-pandemic

Directors need to focus on four things as we emerge from the pandemic – leadership, agility, responsibility and communication. Going forward, how are we going to lead using our new-found ability to pivot and adapt? How will we take responsibility, not just for our business, but for the wider issues facing society, and how will we communicate our purpose, both as organisations and individuals?

We’re always looking for ways to improve the value we bring to our members. This is especially important as we help you face a post-Covid world. We know what we need to do, we’ve made a good start, and now it’s time to pick up the pace.

You’ll notice that this year’s report is different in style. Inside, you’ll find profiles of IoD members who represent our future - ambitious, diverse and playing their part in building back UK plc.
