Policy Voice










We're in constant dialogue with government.
What are your views on today's issues?


We’re in constant dialogue with government. They want to hear our members’ views. What issues and challenges you are facing. What you need fixing.

Policy Voice is a panel of IoD members who give us their views monthly on current business issues. Should furlough be extended? Who deserves a business rates holiday? Should work visas be relaxed to relieve staff shortages? Any IoD member can join Policy Voice and we’d like to hear from you. It’s important we have a cross section of views to share with government and the media. Because they’re listening, and so are we.

Share your views to influence how we talk to those in power on a range of business-critical issues – from trade to taxation, education to entrepreneurship and inclusion to innovation.
