IoD NE (N) members are invited to join the Fellowship Forum online created to support local IoD members throughout these extraordinary times.
The group will be facilitated by Karl Pemberton, IoD NE (South) Chair, who will be joined by Clare Wheeler. Clare specialises in Minimising Risk, Building Confidence and Adapting/Protecting workplaces following many years working the chemicals industry.
The group will look to speak more conversationally. We will reflect on what we've learned in recent months, how we stand now, and what the future looks like now for our businesses.

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
