The IoD has been supporting business leaders for over a century and our world class professional development programmes are specifically designed around professional competencies. Our training is delivered by directors, for directors.

Our portfolio of learning and development programmes has been designed to boost your development as a director or senior leader of your organisation and ensure your leadership skills are kept up to date.

We recognise that this is a tough time for people personally and professionally. Our teams are now home-based and are still available to help you and your business. Please check out our Coronavirus hub for the latest advice, guidance and support.

The well-being of our members, clients and staff is paramount, therefore we have suspended our face to face professional development programmes until further notice and are now offering virtual delivery of all our courses instead.

If you would like to discuss a new booking or talk through what the IoD offers virtually, then please contact our Professional Development team at or 0207 766 2601.
