Director Development

IoD - Assessing Strategic and Financial Health in a Covid-19 World

Course details

CPD Points





1.5 hours - Virtual Delivery

Course Overview

Many Boards and directors have experienced economic shocks and economic recessions before. Many have also previously been on the receiving end of shocks, e.g. 9/11 and the so called Black Swan effects.

But none of us have faced the forced economic hibernation that we are now experiencing. Now, more than ever, directors need to stand up and be counted to provide leadership and direction.

This webinar will attempt to address these issues by guiding you, as a director, as to the conversations you need to have with your colleagues, and the type of actions that you will need to consider.

Course Content

Topics covered will include:

  • Does your strategy still matter?
  • How to assess the changing landscape
  • Stakeholder behaviour and reassessment
  • Innovation vs survival
  • Preparing for post Covid-19. How will you be judged?
  • Assessing your financial health
  • What should the Board focus on?
  • Revisiting the Board Dashboard?
  • Managing cash flow
  • Retaining financial flexibility
  • Understanding risk interdependencies
  • Business and emotional resilience
