Business bosses are being urged to boost their workplace performance by taking on the Institute of Directors' Chartered Director Programme.

The organisation has launched this year's scheme and exam, which aims to give senior executives additional workforce skills, and help managers to become chartered directors.

Paul Terrington, chairman of the IoD in Northern Ireland, said: "Last year's results and the fact we were oversubscribed for the course is evidence that the business community recognises that leading professional qualifications such as the Chartered Director Programme will equip the directors of today and tomorrow with the skills which their companies will greatly benefit from."

The programme is delivered by Director Development Ireland Ltd, headed by former management consultant, Peter Martin.

Fiona Hampton, head of sales and marketing at Ulster Rugby, said the course had been "hugely beneficial".

"It must be the most practical, business-focused course and I thoroughly enjoyed it," she said.
