Can a small island make a big impact on a global issue?

Our 2021 Annual Convention will explore the global issue of sustainability and how integral it is to Guernsey’s global brand and economic prosperity. 

The IoD organising committee has taken great care to ensure the sustainability theme of this year’s Convention has been carried through into the organisation of the event. The programme for the evening is available digitally here.

Chartered Directors

Organisations need effective and informed boards and directors who are aware of their personal responsibilities and accountabilities across a spectrum of activities and disciplines.

Chartered Director is the professional qualification for directors and recognises the high standards and capabilities that are needed for ensuring that the profession of ‘director’ is understood and placed at the heart of organisational life.
