Boardroom Programme

About the Programme

The Deloitte Boardroom Programme is designed to support executive and non-executive directors across all organisations, from blue-chip board members to those looking to start their board journey. Our boardroom community consists of more than 500 directors and is open to anyone who is interested in keeping up to date with relevant board agenda topics and availing of networking opportunities. 

Our programme comprises a mix of supports from webinars providing local and global insights, relevant thought leadership and networking events. Our most popular event is our bi-annual Non-Executive Director dinner which is held in May and November in the Merrion Hotel. This brings together over 80 directors in a convivial atmosphere with a key note address provided by interesting and thought-provoking speakers.
