Unique Board Level Online Training Programme Launches
The UK-based, professional network for board level recruitment, NonExecutiveDirectors.com, has just launched In Touch Development, an online learning and development programme for non executive directors and board members across the country.
The programme, which is the first of its kind in the UK, covers topics such as “The Role of the Non-Executive Director and What it Means for You”, “Managing Your Online Presence”, “The Emotionally Intelligent NED”, and “Building your Personal Brand”.
The course content has been created by curriculum director, Anne Watson, who has spent her career helping people achieve their potential. Anne is a renowned business author, an expert in professional development, and a creator of award-winning learning programmes.
NonExecutiveDirectors.com forms part of the global group, In Touch Networks, the world’s largest non-executive director network, bringing together various groups of CEOs, CFOs, and non-executive directors looking to augment their careers through placement on company boards.
Since its launch back in 2013, In Touch Networks has amassed a network of more than 20,000 members looking for board member roles, and that number is forecasted to exceed 36,000 by the end of the year.
In Touch Development courses are open to all board level directors looking to take their knowledge to the next level, and members of In Touch Networks receive a 75% discount on all courses. Members can link to their network profiles and earn a professional endorsement for completing the course.
Curriculum director of In Touch Development, Anne Watson, said: “The role of a non executive director is a very enriching and rewarding one, but taking on numerous roles can leave little time for self development. The aim of In Touch Developments is to help Non Executive directors stand out and continuously self improve, so they can secure some of the great opportunities that high profile public and private sector organisations post on NonExecutiveDirectors.com.
“We will soon also be offering live webinars, where members can interact with coaches and other directors, addressing topical issues in line with their specific interests.”
In Touch Networks’ Group CEO, Matthew Roberts, said: “To ensure that we are continually improving our offering to mirror the needs of board members, we conducted a survey. The findings revealed that board members wanted a learning and development package that was flexible, to fit around their busy schedules and this is what informed our new venture, In Touch Development. The ongoing course schedule will be informed by member feedback and can be accessed 24-hours a day, seven days a week, on any device.”
In addition to NonExecutiveDirectors.com, other In Touch Networks brands include: TheConsultantHub.com, WomenDirectors.com, FinanceDirectorNetwork.com.
