South Young Directors Forum


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.

The Young Directors Forum (YDF) is a national IoD initiative to engage younger directors and those new to business.Within the South region we remain committed to providing opportunities for young entrepreneurs and managers to develop in a strong business environment, enhancing their professional skills both online and offline through workshops, events and networking with like-minded individuals.

Whilst the concept of ‘young’ is age irrelevant, it aims to support those who are young in business or new to business.

Through its branch network, there are regular opportunities for members and non-members to engage with their branches to learn more about issues facing business directors and access support such as mentoring, event based learning and strong networking.

YDF provides an avenue to the pool of experience within the membership structure of the IoD.  It helps bring together like-minded business leaders on a peer-to-peer level who are willing to share their stories and support each other with practical advice which can contribute to the pooling of best practice models and case studies.
