The Fundamentals of Finance for Company Directors workshop packs in quite the punch for a one-day workshop. Despite having an accounting background and superficial familiarity with financial statements, this workshop helped me gain a more in-depth understanding of Balance Sheet nuances and the connectivity between the three main financial statements. Caroline is an excellent presenter of this workshop. She is knowledgeable, engaging and is able to make the discussions rich and interesting.

The Getting Board Information Right workshop is critical for all stakeholders and for setting the Board up for success. In my experience not enough thought or time goes into this important area and prompted me to attend. Dr Margaret Cullen provided participants with excellent practical and relevant ways to improve the Boards performance and how to get the information right.
The Getting Board Information Right to Set Your Board Up For Success workshop is well worth attending.
The Understanding the Role and Responsibilities of the Board, Its Chair and Directors workshop is a brilliantly managed workshop with real life case studies, and a clear overview of all the relevant legal frameworks, within a relaxed but formal setting which facilitated very good engagement. John is a superb presenter and uses his knowledge and wide ranging experience to great effect in answering questions and prompting discussion. Highly recommend.
The ESG Fundamentals for Directors short programme was very interesting and thought provoking throughout. It was very good at highlighting the significant opportunities emerging from the Global Sustainability Challenges for Businesses.
The Great Strategy in Uncertain Times workshop was pacy, interesting, participative and very worthwhile. I am filled with plenty of new ideas and approaches to bring back to my Board colleagues.

The Chairing for impact: Boards and committees workshop is an extremely useful guide to the practical, organisational and functional roles of a Chair in leading a variety of Boards, and deals effectively with the challenges posed to a Chair when dealing with several types of stakeholder and participant. Highly recommended.

The Getting Yourself Board Ready workshop was very useful, providing focus and practical insights from the very experienced presenter (Carol), it helped me prepare for my subsequent roles as INED. I have referred back to the materials and approaches on several occasions and would recommend this course to anyone considering a Board of Director role.

The Leadership and Governance for Charities in Ireland workshop is a very helpful and worthwhile workshop by the IoD. Directors need to keep learning, trying and continuously improving to achieve best practice in the interests of our charities. Great insights, tips and nuggets of info were given by the participants as well as the presenter.

The ESG Fundamentals for Directors short programme content was comprehensive and up to date, the presenters communicated well and engaged with attendees, the guest speakers were excellent and their stories and experience were helpful. The online format and the 2 weeks interval between sessions work perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I have no hesitation in recommending this course to others.
