Your Professional Development in the East Midlands | CPD | Professional Director Series

09 Sep 2019

The IoD has been supporting business leaders for over a century and our world class professional development programmes are specifically designed around professional competencies. Our training is delivered by directors, for directors.

There are three key Professional Development opportunities within the East Midlands all detailed below.

IoD Professional Director Series | CPD in your region

In an economy that’s changing by the day, it’s never been more important to be on top of your game with professional development.

The IoD is here to help you be the best leader you can be. Whether you’ve been a director for days or decades, there is always something new to discover about the role, your responsibilities, and the business world around you. 

To help you understand your role as a director, and future-proof your board and organisation, we’ve developed our Professional Director Series – bringing accessible and digestible CPD to your region on the topics that matter. 

The whole series – wherever you are in the UK - is mapped to the IoD Director Competency Framework, keeping your learning relevant, up-to-date and in line with your professional development ambitions. Whether you’re embarking on the Certificate in Company Direction or are a qualified Chartered Director, this CPD series is the perfect accompaniment – or refresher – to your existing knowledge.

You’ll also be part of a group of leaders from organisations of all shapes and sizes across your region, giving you the opportunity to connect, learn from each other, share your setbacks and successes, and encourage each other at the most senior level.

All morning sessions 9.00am-12.30pm at £140 + VAT for members and £240 + VAT for non-members.

Role of the Non-Executive Director

This comprehensive programme is designed to equip you with practical strategies to build your network, raise your profile to secure an appointment, and add value in the boardroom.

As more individuals choose ‘portfolio careers’ and demand for non-executive directors continues to rise within multiple sectors including third sector organisations and private companies, it has never been more important to understand the critical requirements and appropriate skill set of a non-executive director.

Gain practical advice from an experienced portfolio non-executive director and participate in interactive case studies. Discover the latest interview tips from top industry head-hunters and put your questions to guest speakers who will be on hand to offer expert guidance.

Incorporated into the programme at no additional cost is an evening drinks reception and dinner with a high profile, portfolio NED guest speaker. This is a fantastic opportunity to network amongst your peers.
