EcoDa - Professional Development for European Directors

"New Governance Challenges for Board members in Europe"

The European Confederation of Directors Associations (ecoDa) has developed a unique European module for directors and supervisory board members seeking to gain European perspective on board functioning and corporate governance. As result of global economic forces, modern boards are becoming increasingly diverse in their composition and business perspectives. For companies operating across Europe, directors and supervisory board member must rapidly gain an understanding of unfamiliar corporate governance systems, regulations, and best practices. They also need an overview of the rapidly changing and often complex EU policy debate on corporate governance.


The main topics of the program are the following:

  • Comparison of European and CG practices

  • Understanding of the different models including the one tier and two tier system

  • Case studies highlighting the different CG models

  • Simulation of a European board: management of international diversity

  • Information on topical European CG themes

  • Information on the European market for directors' mandates


 The program is designed for:

  • Non-executive directors (both newly appointed or experienced) with a cross-border mandate in their board activities or looking for such a mandate.

  • Anyone seeking to update their knowledge of recent EU policy developments in the field of corporate governance will also benefit from the module.

  • Those who have followed or are following national certification programmes.

Registration form
EcoDa has decided to adapt the original format of its education session, and the training is now open for both online and face-to-face participation.

Online participation is still possible (registration through the abover form). A smooth interaction between speakers, face-to-face participants and online participants will be ensured.

Why should European directors attend the training session and what are the benefits from this experience?
