IoD Scotland is currently involved in many government and executive policy/discussion groups and responds to a number of consultative measures.

The division also hosts over 50 courses per year in Edinburgh as well as Director networks in the Highlands and Orkney.

The key role for the IoD in Scotland is to provide help, support and guidance for directors and other business leaders. By doing so we aim to help them develop and function even better, therefore helping the businesses to thrive and, in turn, the Scottish economy to grow – Better Directors, Better Business and Better Economy are all key aspects of our Royal Charter.
