Institute of Directors

The Institute of Directors is Europe's largest membership organisation for business leaders. Established in 1903, the IoD has been representing senior level professionals since our Royal Charter in 1906, earning us our trusted reputation as the business network for leadership.

Today we support our 43,000 members through 44 regional branches across the UK, and an international network that covers six continents. Our success can be measured by the quality of our members, who are some of the most skilled and influential world leaders, from start-up entrepreneurs to directors in the public sector and CEOs of multinational organisations.

We aim to provide our members with a real return on investment, improving cost efficiency with exclusive benefits that can save you over £2,500 every year. This includes access to 10 exceptional city premises across the UK and Europe, three of which are in London, and a further two in Paris and Brussels.

The Kent Branch of the IoD is recognised as the premier business organisation for the business people in Kent. We aim to facilitate networking relations, provide an unsurpassed platform for conducting business and represent the concerns of our members locally, nationally and beyond.

Kent is the most pro-active branch in the IoD network. The Branch Executive Committee aims to support our members business activities locally by providing a range of events, networking opportunities and lobbying actions.

We have almost 1,600 members in Kent and in the last 12 months the branch has held more than 70 events, ranging from social events to discussion forums, business breakfasts, workshops and corporate hospitality days.  We pride ourselves in providing our members with exclusive access to venues and important members of the business community.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for further information on the branch and membership.
