Boardroom skills for business leaders


As companies grow and expand, the demands on senior staff become greater and a switch from an operational to a strategic thinking perspective is needed to continue the success.

This two-day course is designed for you as a current and/or aspiring director to develop your focus at board level. You will receive tailored training from experienced board members and leading business academics covering:

  • Leadership and governance for effective board management
  • Making a strategy work
  • Acting with financial acumen
  • Making risk management a business asset

Experienced board directors, and academic staff from the University of Portsmouth, present sessions using case studies and practical tools that can be applied when you return to the office.

You will have the opportunity to share, engage and gain tailored guidance and feedback. You will come away with the practical skills and knowledge to improve boardroom capability and confidence.
