If you run your own business it’s likely that you don’t have non-executive directors, an advisory panel or a formal group of trusted and experienced business people who you can bounce idea off and who can help you with the challenges and opportunities in your organisation.

That’s why we have created IoD Mastermind:

This is a monthly ‘board’ meeting for you to learn and share in a small group built on the solid foundations of experience and integrity. It is also an excellent network and will be the ‘go-to’ place for ideas and support.

What to expect: 
Inspiration, Connection and Support from a small group of like-minded individuals.

What to bring: 
Your challenges and opportunities together with a commitment to support others.

Facilitating the IoD Mastermind in Harrogate are IoD Ambassadors Ian Garner and Elizabeth Grant 

These Member Only meetings have been running very successfully in IoD East and West Midlands regions and we want our Yorkshire members to benefit too.


12:30 noon arrivals
12:30-2:30pm Mastermind session with 2 course lunch
