Events & Education

While many of us are shareholders and directors - few of us actually invest time and resources in understanding how to be successful in these roles.

What is Sirdar's education service?

Continuous learning and improvement is a critical component in the growth of SMEs and privately-held companies. In elite mountaineering, you learn more in one day on the mountain with an experienced mountaineer than you will in a room full of climbing books for a year. In business it is no different. While there are a huge array of business education opportunities on elements such as human resources, marketing, sales, supply chain management and all the other management disciplines, there is limited business education on our roles as shareholders, directors and their relationship to our role as managers. Sirdar’s education activities fill this critical gap.

Why should I join a Sirdar education event?

Sirdar is considered by many as the leader in the education and implementation of governance in SMEs and privately-held companies. So if you are embarking on a journey of understanding what governance, and independent directors, are all about – this is the place to start. If you are looking to further develop your governance knowledge, or support the development of your management’s ability to engage effectively with the board and lead the company, then speak with us today.


If you know you are missing something in your own knowledge of business, Sirdar might be able to fill that gap. We have a perspective on business that is both unique and challenging. Most importantly – it is one that translates into results.

How can I get value from Sirdar’s education activities?

Sirdar provides astute and practical education experiences designed specifically to support the SME and privately-held company to take that next step towards Extreme Business Success. The Sirdar Business Summit, Sirdar Elite Climbers Club and Sirdar Adventure Climbers Club are all world-renowned programmes that have supported a large number of entrepreneurs to develop their personal understanding of how to unlock the value inherent in the businesses they lead.

Our educational materials, Traversing the Avalanche – a practical guide to the implementation of governance for SME growth, and The Laws of Extreme Business Success, are two books that have been widely reviewed and highly acclaimed and our DVD on the Sirdar Business Summit is a great way to learn about the distinction in your roles.

Sirdar also tailors its governance and management education activities for a specific company’s needs. So if you require a bespoke education program, be it a one-day board training on sustainability or a development opportunity for your management team, we are able to support your specific journey to the summit.
