Congratulations to IoD Northern Ireland Committee member, Geraldine Gordon, who has achieved two significant career milestones. First she gained her Chartered Director qualification and then she was awarded Fellowship of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Having spent many years in the construction sector, Geraldine is currently Managing Director at Gordon Business Consultancy.
Talking about the importance to her of continuing professional development, Geraldine explains that she initially attended an IoD accelerated training camp some five to six years ago. "I had no plans to sit any exams but simply wanted to develop my skills in leadership and to gain a better understanding of good corporate governance. I was so impressed with not only the array of subjects covered but the insight through peer interaction of relevant real-life business cases that I immediately signed up to sit the Certificate exam. I subsequently enrolled and completed the Diploma course and exam".
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the whole IoD team, in particular Peter Martin, Linda Brown and Colin Coffey for their continued support and for a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience".
"I look forward to many years ahead of continued development and training with the IoD, ensuring that I can continue to keep abreast of today's fast moving markets"
