Board Boot Camp for new Directors

Effective Boards begin with effective board members!

A one day IoDNI  ‘boot camp’ for new Directors. This has been devised by our Developing Committee for new Directors, anyone soon to be appointed to a board or any Directors who would like to brush up on their responsibilities.  It will be appropriate for directors in any sector – private, social enterprise, charity and public.

Delivery will be mostly informal through ‘masterclass’ sessions with experienced directors talking about their personal experiences, and will include a quiz to assess your starting knowledge of the role of the director, as well as a session on the legal issues that can lead to spectacular corporate governance failures.

Speakers include Eileen Mullan, Strictly Boardroom; Michelle Hatfield, George Best Belfast City Airport; Sharon O’Connor CDir, Derry City Council; and Mark Hutchinson, Hutchinson Engineering.

Places are limited, so contact the IoDNI to book your place. There is no charge for the programme, lunch is provided. A must do day for those stepping in to the Boardroom.
