Director and Board Development

Over the past year, Directors, Boards and Business Owners have faced unprecedented challenges and have had to make tough decisions, often without the appropriate data or information to hand. These challenges will continue throughout 2021 and strong Leadership and Governance has rarely been more crucial to support the robust decision making that is needed to ensure the survival and growth of businesses across the region.

We are delighted to offer a new development programme and bespoke workshops, specifically designed for Directors, Boards and Business Owners. These workshops are all led by business professionals with a wealth of experience across a range of sectors who are able to bring the topics to life with practical examples and case studies from the real world.

Our Director and Board Development series is designed to build or reinforce the competencies needed to be an exemplar Director and business leader, dealing with the important aspects of directorship and addressing the common issues faced in this challenging role.

Delivery of the Programme

The Director and Board Development programme will be delivered in-person and in half-day sessions in line with the UK Government's COVID-19 working practice.
