The CPD courses you need, delivered straight to you

Professional Director Series

The IoD is committed to supporting lifelong learning opportunities with a variety of continuous professional development (CPD) including our Professional Director Series. This series helps you and your board keep up-to-date through regular events where business leaders share insights on a wide range of current, relevant topics. Delivered via virtual classrooms, the series offers accessible, digestible CPD mapped to our Director Competency Framework. These events provide new information, development activities, identify knowledge gaps and help refresh your skills and knowledge.

The only way to improve the event would be to extend it! It was the best training that I’ve had in a decade and should be mandatory for every board member in every company.
