A group of business leaders in a training session, a woman raising a hand to ask a question

The IoD actively promotes best practice and professionalism within and beyond the boardroom. With over a century’s experience working with directors and senior leaders, we have a unique understanding of what makes an effective leader, a high-performing boardroom, and a successful business.

The IoD’s core mission is to support, represent and set standards for directors in an environment designed to foster effective knowledge sharing and collaboration.

IoD customised programmes, led by experienced directors, include a combination of facilitated classroom sessions, real-world case discussions and small group exercises that encourage participants to think strategically and drive tangible improvements in performance at an individual, board and organisational level.

We look at the client journey holistically, working collaboratively with you to design and deliver learning solutions that are relevant, measurable, accessible and flexible – seeking feedback at every stage of your development pathway with us. Integrated programmes may include accredited workshops, subject-specific facilitations, consultancy or individual coaching sessions, depending on the specific circumstances and required outcomes.
