Our 2.5 day Boardroom Skills programme gives a real view of what it means to be an effective board member. In addition to the necessary technical knowledge, it will show you how to engage fully with all stakeholders and add sustainable value to your business.

Informed by research with top teams globally

Following extensive research, Programme Director Professor Andrew Kakabadse has collated one of the biggest databases of boards in the world – from 43 countries including China, Russia, Middle East and the USA. His research acknowledges the importance of compliance and governance but also shows the significant role of stewardship.

In addition, his research suggests that the vast majority of boards are not respected by their managers, and only 20% of global corporations operate with a truly ethical approach. And yet ethical organisations are statistically more likely to perform better in the medium- to long-term, and appear to suffer no commercial disadvantage even in the short-term.

This research informs the Boardroom Skills programme. Furthermore, we do not teach a single solution or approach to being a board member. We believe that each board is unique and the environment they operate within is complex, and therefore board members need to be equipped to understand, diagnose and respond to their own specific challenges.

This 2.5-day programme provides a toolbox of vital skills and leadership capabilities, debunking the myths and helping you to understand what it really means to be a board member.

  • You will develop the knowledge, skills and awareness to inspire and lead others to fulfill their individual and collective potential.
  • The programme will enable you to understand how to add value and find competitive advantage, recognise the value of sustainability versus financial return and to understand how to trade effectively through a range of dilemmas and challenges operating in a global and complex environment.
  • In addition, you will receive valuable information on what nomination boards and company owners are looking for when selecting their board members.
