Take part in a simulated board meeting using a hypothetical case study to put into practice the strategies and techniques you have covered in modules 1 and 2.

The pre-reading and attendance at a boardroom dinner will prepare you for this simulation. Guided by an expert facilitator, this experience will enhance your knowledge about effective director communication context, progression and quality. This session will allow you to develop a deeper understanding of how to influence boardroom discussion to raise issues that require elevation for exploration, whilst maintaining a professional and respected presence.

Please note that this module cannot be undertaken as a standalone module. There is a prerequisite entry requirement for this module which is attending module 2.
