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 organisation's 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.

Data and Analytics Strategy for Directors

The pandemic has accelerated the pace of digital transformation, driving the value of data to the top of the agenda for boards and directors across all sectors and industries.

In fact, EY’s recent non-executive directors (NED) risk barometer concluded that “rapid technological advances mean that digital transformation, data and cybersecurity have become key priorities. With COVID-19 likely to both intensify and accelerate these changes, NEDs and boards must fully understand these new technologies and their impacts.” In a recent survey, IoD members rated digital transformation and data governance in their top five development priorities.

For many, data represents a key source of competitive advantage – it can create opportunities to innovate, grow revenue, control costs and manage risks. However, it also requires a new set of capabilities – not only technical and operational – but also from directors and the board to be able to guide and lead their organisations to use data as a strategic asset.

Our Professional Director Series is now available complimentary to all full IoD members including CDir and FIoD.
