Equip yourself with the skills to direct change in the boardroom
The role of board director is becoming progressively demanding and diverse. This includes monitoring strategic oversight, scanning emerging potential risks, wider stakeholder and resource building, steering the vision and identifying opportunities for business growth. A board director’s skills in handling dilemmas and inconsistencies, while remaining authentic and ethical, are vital.
The Henley Certificate in Board Practice and Directorship gathers experienced directors, senior leaders, and board members from across the private, public and third sector and different parts of Europe. The 8-month programme addresses the current demands on boards and directorship, equipping you with superior skills for board level engagement and stewardship practices. As accountability becomes more prevalent, the need for professionalisation of directors is important for board effectiveness, contribution and governance.
The Henley Certificate in Board Practice and Directorship is delivered by expert academic faculty, with insights from highly experienced board practitioners. It also draws extensively on the top-team governance research conducted at Henley Business School, which covers more than 19,000 boards across 37 countries.
