Discussing IoD Professional Training In Gibraltar
A lively group of Professionals from Gibraltar’s Business Community, met over Lunch at the Yacht Club on Wednesday 15th February, to talk about their support for the introduction of The Institute of Directors Professional Qualifications, Awards and Certifications to Gibraltar.
Power Of Words in association with the Institute of Directors are launching the provision of Professional Director Development in Gibraltar for the first time.
This is being welcomed by the Business community; the Professional Regulatory Bodies and Societies in Gibraltar; Government representatives, The Hon Albert Isola, Minister for Financial Services and Gaming has given his full support together with The Governor of Gibraltar.
Over a delicious lunch in relaxed surroundings the conversation was very much in support of the initiative, all were in agreement that Leaders should never stop learning and the process of continual professional development is vital. We as Gibraltar PLC must always continue to improve on the already excellent standards of our directors and non–executive directors and the access to these qualifications locally, without the disruptions and expense of travelling elsewhere is most definitely welcomed.
In summary everyone agreed that any initiative to improve Gibraltar’s International Reputation, adding to and enriching the Rock’s pool of competent, informed and professional Director’s is seen as a fantastic opportunity.
Starting with ‘The Role of the Non-Executive Director’ a 1 day course on the 7th April and then from late April we begin the four separate Award Modules that contribute to achieving ‘The Certificate in Company Direction’. Join us for what will be brilliant days!
