Director training and development

Director training and development

After fifteen years of delivering director training and development programmes for a wide range of clients across the UK and, indeed, internationally, we’ve finally given ourselves a make-over, so the links below will all take you to a new website under a new brand, The Boardroom Effectiveness Company.

We’ve expanded the range of programmes, to cover not only corporate governance but also the wide range of skills and issues all directors need to have ‘under their belts’. We’ve also added a range of webinars and open programmes. And coaching support. And consultancy support.

The programmes can all be tailored to meet your particular needs but if you can’t see what you are looking for then we would be more than happy to develop a programme specially for you. Just give us a call on 01582 463465 to find out how we can help you.


Looking for a virtual option? Most of our programmes can also be delivered in webinar formats. To discuss what this might look like for your organisation, give us a call on 01582 463463 to talk through your requirements. (See also the extensive range of ‘off-the-shelf’ webinars offered by our sister company, Maximum Performance, here.)
