Effective director conduct requires the development of softer skills to make you aware of the types of behaviour you may experience and will need as a director. Self-awareness of your behaviour and communication styles and the impact of these on your director effectiveness is key. 

This module includes a board room dinner from 5.00pm to 6.30pm.


  •  Discuss board and director effectiveness an how these elements are assessed.
