Effective Director Course


Take your seat with assurance.


Exploring the role of the company director and the board’s vital contribution towards organisational culture and sustainable governance, this course draws on theory, practice, and the collective knowledge of the participants to simulate the boardroom experience.


What issues and challenges are faced by a director on a board?


How can you best prepare for and understand directorship in the current landscape, with the lens firmly on director capability?


Each module within this three-day course will be facilitated by an experienced non-executive director who will share their insights.
