Director Development

AMPLIFi Governance understands that the complexity of the Family & Private governance space can be challenging and confronting for our directors. Our Director Development team structure education pathways through the various AMPLIFi endorsed partners (such as the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Institute of Directors, Family Business Australia and Bond University) for our Associate Directors in order to build on their core knowledge and experience.  We supplement this by regular practical workshops, presentations and discussions. Director Development’s objective is to deepen each of our Associate Director’s exposure to practical solutions to effective governance in the Family & Private enterprise.

AMPLIFiNet, AMPLIFiMyBoard and our global peer support network form the core of our Director support resources. We seek to enhance these tools, and strategies through third party organisations and individuals who can assist our Associate Directors widen their knowledge and skill. If you believe you or your organisation may be able to contribute to the professional development of our Associate Directors, then please contact us to discuss. Importantly, we have no third party commercial arrangements and our basis of provision is on realised and potential value to our Associate Directors.
