As competent and ethical professionals, we hold ourselves to the highest standards. Good is never good enough. Members are attracted to join because we are authentic and excellent at what we do.
We are forward thinking, always aspiring to improve and change for the better. We are ambitious to create a greater impact for the Institute and our members. We listen to learn. We are enterprising and energetic. We are proactive, action-oriented problem solvers.
We collaborate and co-operate to get the best outcomes. We are open to ideas and diverse views and actively seek the opinions of people from all backgrounds and walks of life. We are active in the community and take our social responsibility seriously.
Our communications approach is from the point of view of best practice in corporate governance. For this reason, you will not see us commenting on, or criticising, specific individuals or boards for governance failings.

For me, personally, the IoD represents one of the most important networks of individuals in the country – senior business leaders who provide thought leadership and drive economic activity.
Commercial & Finance Director, Hospital Services Limited
I have been a member of the Institute of Directors for five years now and have attended a number of workshops and training programmes to brush up on my skills and to ensure that I am legally compliant in all my directorship roles and responsibilities. The IoD hosts a number of very beneficial briefing sessions and is a very supportive organisation that has enabled me to make connections with other peers that would have been unavailable to me prior to my membership.
