What matters in board dynamics.

Ensuring your board remains successful tomorrow. With resources, development, services and branch events you can help improve your board’s awareness and analysis of board and director relationships, board composition, and boardroom ethics - all crucial to enabling your organisation to function cohesively.

In July the IoD will release a Practice Guide on CEO succession and board relations. IoD also has Practice Guides on Board Meetings and Conflicts of Interest along with DirectorsBriefs on boardroom conflict and the board’s role in talent strategy. Getting on board with diversity, is the IoD’s guide for getting diverse talent on boards.

In August the 2017 Directors’ Fees Report, the key source of information on director remuneration trends, will be released.

Mentoring for Diversity pairs experienced directors with board chairs and senior directors for a year. The 2017 intake begins on 1 July. The Future Directors programme develops the next generation of directors by providing future directors with an opportunity to sit at the board table of a New Zealand company for a year, while our branch network is currently calling for applications for the Emerging Director Awards. These awards give individuals wanting to enhance their governance career, mentoring and professional development opportunities.

Running an ethical business takes more than a great code of ethics. The IoD’s online ethics module explores how ethics shape the way you do business. Our webinars on Chairing Fundamentals, Risk agility for SME directors and Risk Trends, facilitate learning at a time that suits you.
