Vision, Mission & Values

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the leading authority on, and influencer of, good corporate governance standards in Ireland for directors and boards and a dynamic and relevant membership body for directors and senior business leaders, supporting them through the lifecycle of their business lives.

Our Mission

To provide guidance, training and support for IoD members and directors to strengthen the governance, and thereby the performance, of companies and organisations in Ireland within the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Our Values

Competent, maintaining the highest standards throughout all of our activities 

With enthusiasm and high levels of activity, committed, dynamic and modern

Open to others, considerate of the views and opinions of all stakeholders

Open and Honest 
Frank and communicative, receptive and accessible, truthful and sincere

For the benefit of members and to ensure the long-term viability of the organisation, while demonstrating initiative and resourcefulness, and being responsive to opportunity

Our Voice

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.
