Why book this course?
Being a director in a business can be substantially different to other leadership roles. As well as your direct responsibilities within the company, you also have to contend with the role of the board, and how you fit into it. This requires a keen understanding of management, communication, direction and ethics as well as traditional leadership skills.
Our training course for directors breaks down the jargon surrounding the role, and offers guidance on a range of responsibilities. You’ll learn how to get the best out of the board, its makeup and structure, the relationship of the board with management, and the duties and responsibilities you will have as a director.
Who is the course for?
Our Directors – Roles and Responsibilities course is ideal for new directors, as well as current directors who are looking to improve in their role, or simply rethink the way they lead their businesses and perform their duties.
The course aims to both provide an overview of the role of a director, and teach candidates the latest techniques for management and information on legal duties. It is also an ideal opportunity to explore the issues you may be facing with our trainers, and to convene with your peers in a relaxed and open setting.
