Free director-development training for founder of This is EPIC

We are thrilled to announce that Louise Smith, founder of This Is EPIC, was awarded the free place on our Institute of Directors Introductory Certificate in Board Readiness.

This is the second free director development training place that has been taken up by a local charity, the first being Steve Byrne of the GSPCA. Louise was awarded this place by Guernsey Community Foundation to support her continued development of the local charity she founded. Louise and her team effect positive change in the lives of people, families and communities worldwide.

Louise (pictured opposite with IoD tutor Terry Waymouth) has completed the first part of the programme – a two-day workshop which brings to life key issues that boardrooms face today and provides the necessary skills, knowledge and support to be a success, driving forward the future of the business being represented. Following the workshops Louise commented:

“Having been a director of This Is EPIC for a number of years, many of the decisions that had been made had been on a reactive basis, but this course has helped to provide a better understanding of management tools that can be useful in helping us to develop the future strategy for This Is EPIC. This course has benefited myself and also This Is EPIC as the charity is growing and developing rapidly, and it is key for me to be able to make educated decisions that will affect the future of the charity both on Guernsey and with our international projects.”

She will complete the programme at the end of September 2017 with a one-day director mindset workshop delivered by executive coach, Chris Atkinson, designed to support the transition into the role and mindset of a boardroom director.
