The IoD aims to ensure that tomorrow’s leaders are represented and supported, which
is why we’ve created two groups in London for young directors.
We want to develop the membership so that younger and new directors can:
- Share best practice and learn together
- Network with like minded individuals
- Discuss issues of concern to their contemporaries
- Have access to high-quality professional development
Since 2005 we have delivered our plans through a series of events and programmes, including:
Networking– Our aim is to provide members with an informal and relaxed environment for networking and socialising, either as standalone occasions or as part of organised events and programmes.
Personal development events and workshops – These events reflect trends or challenges in business today. We get expert speakers to talk and debate current topics. We have hosted a number of speakers and entrepreneurs including, for example, TV personality and founder of Carluccio’s Antonio Carluccio.
Mentoring – For young and new directors: our members have actively asked us to investigate and develop a mentoring programme for them and we hope to launch this shortly.
