Applied Directorship Programme

The Applied Directorship Programme is a practical, hands-on 11-month learning experience designed to enable you to successfully climb the mountain of being a director. Central to the process are the principles of gamification, simulated boardroom discussions and practical feedback. Being a director is not about theoretical knowledge, it is about understanding your role and effectively applying it. That is what this process is designed to support you to do.
