Overview

IoD Professional Director Series Online 


The IoD is here to help you be the best leader you can be. Whether you’ve been a director for days or decades, there is always something new to discover about the role, your responsibilities, and the business world around you. In an economy that’s changing by the day, it’s never been more important to be on top of your game with professional development. 

To help you understand your role as a director, and future-proof your board and organisation, we’ve developed our Professional Director Series – bringing accessible and digestible CPD to your region on the topics that matter. The whole series – wherever you are in the UK - is mapped to the IoD Director Competency Framework, keeping your learning relevant, up-to-date and in line with your professional development ambitions. Whether you’re embarking on the Certificate in Company Direction or are a qualified Chartered Director, this CPD series is the perfect accompaniment – or refresher – to your existing knowledge.

You’ll also be part of a group of leaders from organisations of all shapes and sizes across your region, giving you the opportunity to connect, learn from each other, share your setbacks and successes, and encourage each other at the most senior level. 


Step to the Top

This workshop will enable the participants to determine whether they are ready (and willing!) to take the step to the boardroom.  

Sometimes people find themselves presented with the opportunity to become a board member – perhaps on the basis of either being good at something else (e.g. being a senior manager, an accountant or an engineer) or perhaps by accident! Often, no consideration is given to whether they are board-ready or capable.  

This interactive workshop explores what it means to be a director, the duties and obligations that the role brings with it and how it differs from being a manager in an organisation. It also examines the skills, knowledge and mind-set that are required of an effective board member and provide delegates who wish to make the leap to the boardroom with signposting to areas where they can get further support and training in order to develop into confident and effective directors. 

The workshop is delivered by experienced board directors who, drawing on their personal experiences, will provide the delegates with a practical insight into life as a board member of both large and small companies. 

By the time the delegate has completed the session, they should be able to:  

- Assess whether they are ready and willing to meet the challenge of becoming a board director.  

- Identify the gaps in their knowledge and expertise, and understand how they need to develop in order to become a confident and effective director.
