IoD Bermuda October 2019 PD Modules

September 7, 2019

The Fall series of director development courses have been organized by the Bermuda branch of the Institute of Directors.

“In a recent survey of our members, 87 percent said locally offered professional designation courses were very or somewhat important,” said Rochelle Simons, the IoD branch chair.

“We are therefore pleased that we will host two modules in the IoD Certificate in Company Direction [CICD] designation programme, Role of the Director and the Board, and, Strategy for Directors, to residents in October.

“Survey results also highlighted interest in skills-based training. Skills training modules do not qualify as part of the Certification programme; they are specifically designed for directors and cover the wide spectrum of roles, responsibilities and leadership skills that are essential in the boardroom.

“Requests for modules in Improving Board Effectiveness and The Role of the Chairman received 57 percent and 54 percent support from respondents, respectively. Board Evaluation was also popular at 54 percent.

“We believe the interest in these internal board functioning modules is a positive indication from directors seeking opportunities to influence and impact board performance in a powerful way. This is a great mind-set for the future of businesses in Bermuda.

“In response to the survey results, and in making the most of having IoD Course Leaders on Island in October, the Branch will offer the Improving Board Effectiveness module.

“The one-day workshop will address the role of the board, the chair and non-executive directors in creating a climate that facilitates effective leadership in the boardroom.”

“This is the first time the IoD Bermuda will offer a skills-based training to Bermuda residents. The training is appropriate for commercial and non-profit leaders. The IoD Bermuda is pleased to extend the IoD member rate for this module to Executive Directors and staff of Bermuda registered charities.”
