Looking to boost your director skills? You’re in the right place.

Professional development is the cornerstone of good governance and the IoD represents the best in training and education for directors.

The need for continual learning was demonstrated by the huge uncertainties created by the pandemic. It was those directors that had invested in their skills who were able to switch, pivot and innovate. Their agility and resilience was very much in evidence.

In this blog, I want to urge you to take advantage of the world’s leading school for directors.

The IoD successfully moved to virtual learning during 2020 but I’m pleased to say that in-person training has now returned, although the virtual classroom remains open. One of the most useful elements of group training is the ability to compare notes while connecting with fellow students.

The Institute’s professional development ranges from bitesize CPD sessions to three-day courses, all led by directors, for directors.

I’d highly recommend that you peruse the wide-ranging selection of IoD open courses to enhance your skills as a director, drive good governance and, of course, build your resilience so that you are equipped as a leader to face challenges with confidence.
