IoD Switzerland working group - March update
With a large and growing community of British professionals, Switzerland provides the IoD with a strong platform to expand its mission to support, represent and set standards for business leaders.
Our closely interlinked business relationships have played an integral part in the U.K. becoming one of the leading economic partners of Switzerland.
The IoD has recently held two working groups with our current Swiss-based members. We were encouraged by the feedback we received on our plans to establish a formal branch. We are grateful for the proactive approach taken by our members to support our future efforts, including through meaningful collaborations with local businesses and professional alliances.
We believe that the historically deep economic ties between our two countries, our complementary strengths and growing shared interests across some of the largest economic sectors will allow the future IoD Switzerland branch to become a key contributor to fostering a resilient, innovative and sustainable business environment.
The IoD Switzerland will grow our presence by offering professional development, Chartered Director programmes, and regular educational and networking events to bring together a community of like-minded professionals across all sectors. We will also join forces with some of the leading British and Swiss local business organisations to foster important dialogues and promote better professional and governance practices.
Helping to lead the group IoD Switzerland member Natasha Drapeau, please feel free to connect with her via LinkedIn for more information.
