Australian Institute of Company Directors


The world’s largest director institute, the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) will host its flagship governance education program, the International Company Directors Course in Dubai from 14 to 18th October 2018.

The International Company Directors Course is the only program of its kind. Designed to build the governance skills and knowledge of directors and senior executives working across borders, the course has been part of the AICD’s extensive education curriculum for more than 12 years.

Over the course of five days, participants are led through an intensive 10-module curriculum by an expert facilitator with real-world director experience. The course covers compliance, financial management, strategy and how to navigate complex and challenging governance processes. It also prepares participants to readily identify and mitigate the many risks associated with cross-border operations.

The course has seen participants who have included executives who balance their senior management roles with directorships on subsidiary boards or joint ventures, as well as seasoned directors establishing themselves on international boards.

This makes for an excellent opportunity to meet and network with other like-minded senior executives and directors from across the globe.

Ian Belton MAICD, Managing Director, Chrystal & Co undertook the course having actively participated in a joint venture in Indonesia for the past 15 years to gain a better understanding of his obligations as an Australian director in an international environment.

“The highly-experienced facilitators along with my fellow participants generously passed on many pearls of wisdom,” he said.

“The course not only helped me understand my professional obligations but gave me the insights and tools to assist me to become a more effective director.”

The course materials have been created by directors for directors and are updated regularly. Participants can expect a practical, director-focused learning experience with immersive discussions and case studies with practical take-aways, allowing them to immediately implement your learnings in the boardroom or in your management role.

Past participant, Anneliese Reinhold MAICD, General Counsel & SVP Legal and Regulatory Affairs, Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company, continues to see the benefits from completing the course.

“Finding good sources of practical information on governance is not easy – particularly in an international context,” she said.

“I felt that the International Company Directors Course really hit the mark and has inspired me with some completely fresh ideas for my professional development.”
