Supporting Sarah will be Vice-Chair, Dr. Shamir Ghumra, a Director at BREEAM, and a 12 strong committee of Ambassadors from across the region representing key sector areas and issues of relevance to IoD Members.

The IoD was granted a Royal Charter in 1906 setting out the mission and responsibility for the organisation. It has four elements:-

To promote for the public benefit high levels of skills, knowledge, professional competence and integrity on the part of directors and equivalent office holders of companies and other organisations.

To represent the interests of IoD members and the business community, to government and all opinion formers. To encourage and foster a climate favourable to entrepreneurial activity and wealth creation.

To promote the study, research, and development of the law and practice of corporate governance, and to share findings.
