Directors’ Development Programme for CySEC Regulated Entities

Directors’ Development Programme for CySEC Regulated Entities


Effective Directors and Board members need to be the driving force that will lead to the success of their organisation.  Whether you are a newly appointed Director, seeking to join the Board, or merely wanting to consider the impact of your role and enhance your leadership skills, the EIMF’s Directors Development Programme will equip you with the core skills and awareness to function effectively as a Director and/or Board member.

  • An understanding of the characteristics of an effective board, including ethical and professional conduct standards
