  • Engaging in multimedia presentations
  • Thought-provoking discussions
  • Relevant Malaysian and international case studies
  • Sharing peer-to-peer experience 
  • Boardroom simulation/role play (where relevant)

  • External experiential learning opportunity (where relevant)
  • Summarised learning gems and action plan 

 

Mentoring & Coaching

Our experiential learning approach is further supported with group forums, targeted coaching and mentoring to provide more meaningful exchanges of thoughts, experience, tips, guidance, ideas and aspirations among the directors.

Chartered Director

The long-term plan of ICDM Director Development Pathway is to offer a Chartered Director qualification as the gold standard that represents world class professionalism and internationally recognised credentials. The Chartered Director qualification will bring the professional standards to its highest level by looking into both technical competencies and cultural aspects.

Keep It Fresh
Even the most seasoned directors will need to enhance their knowledge and skills on various topics related to the ever-changing business and economic landscape in and out of Malaysia. It is vital to have an open mind to update your knowledge at the foundation and core levels where it directly affects your personal liability.

Directorship Exposure Minimised
Did you know the Companies Act 2016 has increased sanctions for director non-compliance and/or breaches to a maximum fine of RM3 million and/or with maximum imprisonment term not exceeding 10 years? Bolster your knowledge with the essential programmes.
