Event Details


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, supporting a Board or one of its Committees, 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 current or future Director and/or Board member or support staff.
