Seek knowledge

"Membership has given me access to a network of other Directors in my local area and elsewhere, as well as some great training opportunities. I found the training provided by the IoD (I have completed the Certificate and the Diploma in Company Direction) to be excellent, in building both knowledge and self-confidence."

Become inspired

“As I grew in my role, I embarked on the Chartered Director programme and joined the IoD, continuing to push myself to learn about corporate governance. This has led me to being a member of 5 boards. My advice is continue past your comfort zone to take opportunities and learn new fields to grow in your career.”

Remove boundaries

“Although we live in data rich times where we have access to information, it felt like a minefield to get the business support from a central trusted source. It’s given me the freedom to make decisions while feeling the safety net of support of the heritage of experience and resources I can draw from the IoD”
