The purpose of the Fellowship Forum is to support and help directors respond effectively to the current crisis and to step up and make the most of the leadership opportunity the current crisis is presenting to us all.

The Forum will take the form of a series of small group on-line video sessions via the IoD Zoom platform. The aim is to give directors and senior business leaders the chance to discuss the key issues and challenges they face in an open, constructive and confidential environment.

Each online session will be hosted by an IoD North East Ambassador and will be limited to 15 IoD members at a time.

The key issues covered in the Forum sessions will be driven by the participants and could include:

Ideas, tips and practical insights to help directors cope, thrive and survive the current Covid-19 virus

Ways to support each other as and when required, this is safe space to enable directors to ask for help if needed.

Sharing topics that we know are of interest to all directors at this time

Signposting directors to useful information put out by any of our trusted local business group partners such as the LEP; Universities; CBI; FSB; Chamber of Commerce and of course our own IoD Central team

The sessions will be run under Chatham House rules
