THE DIRECTOR CLIMATE
This is our flagship climate training & networking program for directors and full boards. It includes 7 workshops and a site visit professionally facilitated and supported by recognized experts and thought leaders.
We are happy that cohort 1 & 2 of the Director Climate Journey were successfully filled.
A third cohort is in the making to start on 29 September 2022. Apply below.
THE CLIMATE URGENCY
As a result of the unprecedented climate crisis, companies face risks as well as a growing number of opportunities.
Investors, government, customers and employees are pivoting their expectations.
Companies need to transition - promptly and thoroughly.
THE DIRECTOR'S OPPORTUNITY
Climate-competent directors are beacons in this transition, skilfully guiding their boards and companies away from business models of the past towards a journey in which the companies can make recognizable and positive contributions to society.
Those are directors of the companies that are heralded in the media as role models for creating sustainable value and having a lasting positive impact on mankind and the planet.
YOU MAY NOT BE READY THOUGH
Usually, directors have extensive networks, knowledge and experience - unfortunately not necessarily on climate change and its wide-ranging implications.
While they may be aware of the
climate crisis, board directors often do not know where to start to help their companies address climate change.
They are unsure who to turn to for help, what questions to ask, how to activate and guide their boards and management, and how to guarantee they themselves are not falling
foul of their legal responsibilities.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
The Director Climate Journey provides a safe and confidential place for directors to become climate-connected and climate-competent.
The Journey helps directors gain the knowledge, tools and peer network over a period of 3 months - it includes:
Board Climate Scan
3 in-person workshops / site visit
4 live digital seminars
1 best practices sharing session one year later
About 10 hours of preparation and self-paced learning
The journey is professionally facilitated and each session is supported
by an expert from the climate, corporate governance or business arena.
The prerequisite to join this journey is that you are a member of a board for a profit or non-profit organisation.
You will find below an overview of the Director Climate Journey's training and networking program. For more details on each session and the guest speakers involved, simply click the image below or download our program.

PROCESS & FEES.
The Director Climate Journey takes place in small groups of directors from boards of companies. Directors preferably join in pairs. While it is optional, the purpose is that pairs would develop a shared language, mutual support, and ongoing dialogue about applying the insights gained during the program to their own boards.
We promote and ensure a safe, benevolent and confidential learning and networking environment.
You are a director of a board of a for-profit or non-profit organisation (Some exceptions can be made for aspiring directors or executives - contact us to discuss more)
