Policy Voice enables you to make your voice heard through
monthly surveys on key business issues.
in 2008 to help fulfil the terms of our Royal Charter, Policy Voice seeks IoD
members’ opinions on the issues that matter to directors, including
Brexit, regulation, skills and the economy.

Your responses are key to forming IoD policy, and shared directly with the people that matter in Government. Described as 'a closely watched poll' by The Times' Business Editor, your input makes an impact in the public debate.
Voice participants - now numbering over 3,000 members - receive invitations to exclusive events and feedback on how the figures have been used. Watch the video below to find out more about how Policy Voice works and some of the wins we have achieved.
