Institute of Directors North West
As a worldwide association of members operating for over 100 years, the Institute of Directors (IoD) provides a professional network that reaches into every corner of the business community with members from the largest public companies to the smallest private firms.
The institute represents individual directors from all sectors of business who receive a variety of benefits including information, advice, training, conferences and publications to help them maximise their potential.
The region is made up of 5 branches, which includes Cheshire, Cumbria, Liverpool, Manchester and Lancashire, with each one represented by a dedicated and enthusiastic committee who are assisted and supported by the regional IoD staff. The North West region has almost 3,000 active members, with the regional office located in the very heart of Manchester city centre.
An IoD objective is to make sure business views are taken into account when the government is reviewing policy or simply seeking views on local issues and of the wider business community. Businesses will be encouraged to share their views during many of their events and networking opportunities.
