The Advanced Directors’ Course is an immersive three and a half day course designed for skilled directors tackling complex governance issues and challenges, and looking to hone their leadership skills.
Our new premium course offering has been created for skilled directors as progression after completing the Company Directors’ Course.
Our Advanced Directors' Course (ADC) curriculum is focused on three key themes - board leadership, cultural intelligence and climate awareness, and each day focusses on a different facet of being a director - you, your board and practical governance.
Your days will be facilitated by a team of highly experienced directors who will share their experiences, facilitate discussions and work through challenging board scenarios. The curriculum is tailored to suit the skill set, experiences and sectors of each cohort. And we also build in time for networking informally with the other attendees.
This course is designed to leave you with a renewed sense of purpose and armed with the practical tools to lead impactful change at board level.
Participants are selected as part of our application process to ensure everyone attending has the right mix of skill sets and experience to create a strong and vibrant learning experience.
