View my personal invitation to try the programme

Remember: where regulation and litigation are concerned,
ignorance is not an excuse.

At board level you are expected to have a broad range of skills and experience, and a high level of awareness of current affairs.


CPD covers a wide range of activities from reading a national newspaper and monitoring TV and radio news to attending formal courses.


I recommend that your professional development plan should involve a mix of general and strategic objectives, as well as a mix of different types of activity.


These typically include:

Reading | Courses | Events | Activities

Instant download

When you subscribe to our CPD programme you can immediately download a 43-page CPD Record to help you plan your programme and then keep a record of achievement.


The comprehensive introduction includes articles on: 

  • How to study effectively
  • A personal audit
  • How to get valuable feedback
  • Two quick performance checks - effective benchmarks of behaviour
  • A comprehensive personal goal setting exercise

There are then twelve monthly diary pages so you can record and review your effective learning hours - and award yourself CPD Points:

  • Reflection - what are my needs or objective?
  • Planning - what am I going to do?
  • Evaluation - what have I learned?
  • Action - What have I done; how can it be applied?

Finally there is an annual review and carry-over for next year.

Monthly downloads

Each month you receive a new 48-page A5 CPD Guide in PDF and audio formats including:

  • Checklists for Directors and Boards
  • Corporate Governance
  • Becoming a Director
  • Roles & Responsibilities of Directors
  • Building Your Own Support Network
  • Networking as a Director
  • Running Effective Meetings
  • Away Days and Corporate Retreats
  • Finance for Non-financial Managers
  • Vision, Mission and Values
  • Scenario Planning
  • Annual Report and Accounts


When you subscribe to the CPD Programme for Governance Professionals, you get free registration on the fast-track

foundation programme that covers the fundamental behaviours of directors and boards.


Ensure a basic grounding in governance for directors and secretaries from which to build your monthly learning.

I strongly believe in the value of continuing professional development and recommend you check out this programme. 


It costs only £1 for a one month trial!

Best wishes
