Essentials of Directorship

For aspiring and new directors, and senior executives who interact with a board, these courses address governance, finance, strategy and risk. This comprehensive series of one day courses delivers a rewarding introduction and insight into the roles and responsibilities of the board and individual directors.

Essentials of Directorship consists of:

  • Governance Essentials*
  • Finance Essentials
  • Strategy Essentials
  • Risk Essentials
  • Digital Essentials

* Each of the following courses can be attended instead of Governance Essentials. They provide the same core information, but with discussion or formats tailored to suit your focus.         

  • Governance Development Programme
  • Not-for-Profit Governance Essentials
  • Rural Governance Essentials

If you’re looking to advance your core knowledge in only a few of these areas you can attend the courses on an individual basis, however we recommend that you attend all five courses to get the most out of the learning experience.
