Skills and training for directors and owners



As a business owner or director, you need a mix of different skills for your business to succeed.

You may be a first-class engineer, but unless you can sell your product, your business is likely to fail. Likewise, you could be an expert with finances, but unless the people you employ are well-managed, your business could collapse.

Running a successful business means being able to access many skills. As your business grows, the range and complexity of skills your business needs will grow too.

This guide outlines the kind of skills that businesses need to function successfully and the skills required by those heading a business. It will also advise you on where to go to find help and training to ensure all these skills needs are met in your business.
