Most directors acknowledge CPD’s importance (the regulator certainly does). Yet professional development often gets neglected at the senior level.

It’s understandable. People are busy. You have twenty different issues demanding your attention, so training gets pushed down the list.

But not making time for CPD is a mistake. It’s not just a director’s knowledge that falls behind; the board (and thus the whole firm) can see a drop in standards.
