The Directors Development Academy

The Directors Development Academy (DDA) offers a suite of modular programmes which enable high-level directors to understand concepts associated with the practice of directorship in organisations. Delegates will reflect on their own psychology, leadership skills, appreciation of and skill sets around strategic analysis and implementation, and their stewardship roles as corporate governors.

The DDA programmes are ideal for directors, c-suite executives, owner-managers and entrepreneurs, who are looking for an outstanding personal development opportunity to become high-performing, effective business leaders.
