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.

IoD Professional Director Series - Data Governance for Directors with the Open Data Institute

In response to growing demand for professional development on data at board level, this course focuses on director knowledge and skills in relation to data governance. It builds on the successful ODI Inside Business campaign – a series of webinars and podcasts to which the IoD has contributed.  The session will open with a discussion of what is meant by data and data governance, and the common misconceptions around these terms. Using case studies and real-world examples, delegates will identify what directors and boards should know about data governance frameworks, and how such frameworks can reduce organisational risk while providing efficiencies, cost savings and innovation opportunities..
By the end of this session, delegates will be able to:

  • Define ‘data’ and ‘data governance’
  • Describe the board’s responsibility in relation to data governance
  • Identify opportunities and risks relating to data governance as part of an organisation’s overall strategy
  • Access a range of resources and tools for developing good data governance

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