IoD South Online: Directors’ Connect on the Changing Economy

24 Jun 2021
Online webinar, Online

Our first meeting was well attended by a range of directors from diverse sectors and from across the IoD South network.  The conversation was frank, open and supportive for all.
We are continuing on a quarterly basis and the next one is on 24 June to again enable Sussex Directors to connect, share, and exchange peer-to-peer learning and good practices. For example, how has Brexit or Covid impacted your business?   
Many of you join the IoD to engage in a community of like minds but different experiences. You are all managing unprecedented change and we have received feedback that fellow directors want to both listen to and share experiences of managing change and overcoming barriers. This is a unique opportunity to share ideas with peers in an informal way. 
IoD Sussex works closely with IoD Governance and Policy team in London and we know that sharing your experiences with peers will help us understand in detail the key challenges you face and that can be fed into the wider policy work with both national and local government.
Join us at 1pm on 24 June for this opportunity to engage and connect with fellow Directors and members.
