Demonstrate your commitment to being an effective NED by getting a professional qualification
The role of directors and strategic leaders within all sectors and organisations has never been under as much scrutiny as it is today. With an ever-increasing focus on professionalism and integrity demanded from the Government, investors, the media and other stakeholders, directors are faced with a simple choice; improve and raise standards, or face the consequences.
For many years it has been assumed that business experience and being good at the job was qualification enough.
Modern business has changed. There are now extra demands on directors. You simply cannot afford to stand still. It is vital that, as a business leader, you are up to date with best practice and current business thinking, with the means of demonstrating this to the outside world. You will have recognised that learning and development towards a professional qualification tailored to your role is essential to improve your capability and enhance your status as a director.
Development should not stop at the boardroom door, it should be regarded as the beginning of a journey.
For over 13 years the Institute of Directors (IoD) have been offering a highly regarded professional programme of qualifications which are designed to provide Directors or aspiring Directors, both Executive and Non-Executive from the private, public and voluntary sectors with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to be able to provide effective direction to their organisations.
