Policy Voice is the IoD’s online community open to all members through which you can participate in monthly surveys on key business issues, such as skills, access to finance, regulation and Brexit priorities. Your experiences and opinions that we collect are shared in regular meetings with senior government figures and the media, and developed into our policy reports.
We make sure that your participation is valued through regular invitations to exclusive events (such as monthly breakfasts with IoD’s Director General), regular feedback on how your insights are used, and chances to win complimentary places on IoD workshops as well as other prizes.
Members who participate in the surveys can also choose to receive requests to speak to the media, providing you with a way to contribute to the wider debate and to raise your own profile.

"Having worked with and for business membership organisations for nearly twenty years I believe that the IoD’s “Policy Voice” network is almost unique.
"Allied with daily policy bulletins it gets IoD members involved with the debate and ensures that the lobbying activity of the IoD policy team is aligned with the interests and needs of the members themselves. Most membership bodies create policy groups by invitation, that then determine the policy position of the organisation. The IoD uses Policy Voice to obtain the views of all members that choose to join the network and is then bound by the results of the surveys conducted.
"This means that the IoD policy position is not overly influenced by large companies or vested interests and allows strong positions to be taken on topics such as Brexit, HS2 and poor corporate governance in the case of companies such as Sports Direct and Carillion.
"I believe that Policy Voice is a great way of getting your views heard, influencing the agenda and ensuring that the voice of business is heard in Government.”
