At the Institute of Directors, we have been supporting businesses and the people who run them since 1903. As the UK’s longest running organisation for professional leaders, we are dedicated to supporting our members, encouraging entrepreneurial activity and promoting responsible business practice for the benefit of the business community and society as a whole.
We are your representative and voice in business, no matter what your company size. We support our 34,500 members through 48 regional branches across the UK, allowing us to be influential at a local level, as well as nationally. Our members are some of the most skilled and prominent leaders in the UK, from start-up entrepreneurs to directors in the public sector and CEOs of multinational organisations.
As an independent association of business leaders, our objective is to make sure your views are taken into account when the government is reviewing policy, legislation or seeking the views of the wider business community.
High standards of excellence and professionalism in the boardroom are essential for businesses to succeed. We have been supporting leaders in their professional development for many years and our highly regarded programmes provide creative and flexible training opportunities, including our exclusive and industry-recognised qualification, Chartered Director.
