To help you understand your role as a director, and future-proof your board and organisation, we’ve developed our Professional Director Series to be delivered virtually – bringing accessible and digestible CPD straight to you. The whole series – wherever you are in the world – 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 be part of a group of leaders from organizations of all shapes and sizes from across our regions and nations, allowing you to connect, learn from each other, share your setbacks and successes, and encourage each other at the most senior level during these difficult times.

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