February intake – Sirdar Applied Directorship Programme

Skills Consulting Group Who we are page Training

The Sirdar Applied Directorship Programme is a practical, hands-on 11-month learning experience designed to enable you to successfully climb the mountain of being a director. Central to the process are the principles of gamification, simulated boardroom discussions and practical feedback. Being a director is not about theoretical knowledge, it is about understanding your role and effectively applying it. That is what this process is designed to support you to do.

You should attend if:

  • You run a business and are looking to implement a value-adding board
  • You are taking over the family business and are looking to be recognised as a director who has the skills and the knowledge to fulfil this role
  • You are looking for your first appointment as a non-executive director
  • You have an opportunity to become a director and you want to make the most value-adding contribution in the boardroom
  • You are currently a director and would like to develop your skills further

Join the Sirdar Applied Directorship Programme and challenge your thinking, improve your prospects and begin your journey as a high-performance director.
