The IoD Chartered Directors' Virtual Summit will explore how directors are dealing with leadership and governance within a fast-moving economic, social and political landscape.

Guests will hear from IoD director general Jonathan Geldart and former IoD chair Charlotte Valeur on the value of neurodiversity in the boardroom. There will also be panel discussions on the green recovery and diversity and inclusion followed by interactive breakout sessions to explore key issues and opportunities with fellow attendees.

Anne-Marie Mountifield, Chief Executive of Solent LEP, said: “It is an honour to be shortlisted for the Chartered Director of the Year award alongside some very talented business leaders. The Chartered Director programme has been hugely beneficial to me in my role at the Solent LEP and our Board share the IoDs commitment to continual improvement in all of our work to support the Solent economy. The IoD is the only institute in the world to offer qualifications under the Royal Charter, which is recognised as an international symbol of best practice, and I am grateful to my fellow LEP Directors that have offered support and guidance to me during my time on the Board”.

Emma Hicks, head of professional development, IoD, said: “The IoD believes that better directors build a better world and no-one embodies this more than those who have achieved Chartered Director status. The winner of our award has excelled on their professional development journey within a cohort of highly talented business leaders. I look forward to celebrating their success at our summit.”

Anne-Marie Mountifield has been nominated for this national award following the announcement that she had won the Institute of Directors (IoD) London and South’s annual Director of the Year Awards in September of this year. Please see full article here.
