Foundations of Directorship

Recently I embarked on the Foundations of Directorship program at the Australian Institute of Company Directors which comprises three one-day courses:

  • Governance for Directors
  • Risk and Strategy for Directors
  • Finance for Directors

As with many of the education options I seek out, it's mostly for my own confidence and to self-assess what I know, what I don't, and how it all fits together.

I joined the Board of a sporting association back in 2015 and I've sat on various committees and local school council so I had some background. Additionally, I run my own business but I'm not the director so it was useful to fill some gaps in my knowledge and build out that bigger picture.

Part of the program is the opportunity to get a completion certificate which I haven't had time to get to yet, but I have 3 months so hopefully I can get back to that in time!
