The Effective Director Series

The Effective Director Course is a sharply focused programme that delivers critical content in a condensed period of time. It is designed for all directors, including those in SME's Not-for-Profits, NGO, charities etc who want to gain skills and knowledge but who cannot afford a full week out of the business.

The workshop is three days in duration, each day two weeks apart or three weeks apart. You will be provided with a board pack and each session will include a mix of presentations, discussions, case studies.
