The IoD believes that better directors build better businesses and a better world. But it can be hard to make the right decisions for your organisation when the economic and regulatory outlook is so unpredictable. This is where the IoD Director's Quarterly Update comes into play.

You are invited to register for the October Update with the IoD Policy Team – so that you can remain fully up to date on the issues that matter to directors. At this members-only event, the Policy Team will summarise the report’s highlights and answer your questions.

Join us on 12 October to ask the experts and get the inside track on the economy and key developments in regulation and the business environment.
