IoD South Online - Kent member influence engagement webinar "Purpose, Vision and Values in Support of Future Planning"

23 Sep 2021
Online webinar, Online

Join the IoD Kent Ambassadors ‘Influence’ Sub-Committee in a Quarterly 55 minutes online Presentation & Discussion

‘Better Directors Build a Better World’

The IoD believes that ‘Better Directors Build a Better World’.  Over the next 3 years (2021- 2023) the newly formed IoD Kent Influence sub-committee will be reaching out on a quarterly basis to IoD Kent Members in an online Presentation & Discussion format in support of this belief.  The IoD Kent Influence sub-committee comprises William English CBE, Chair & Ambassador for Policy and Corporate Governance, Paul Knights, Ambassador for Specialist Sectors and Lesley Bennett, Senior Branch Manager for IoD Kent and SE Region.

Each event will be just 60mins long and include a guest speaker speaking for 15 minutes, followed by 25 minutes of open forum discussion on the chosen subject.  In the last 5 minutes the Chair will sum up with some key take-aways and signposting to further study in the topic of the day.  This webinar, on 23rd September, will focus on Purpose, Vision and Values in Support of Future Planning.

We hope Members will find these events both intellectually stimulating and an opportunity to broaden their network across the IoD community.  Future events in 2021 will include Making the Most of Continuous Professional Development .
