This is what our Chair and the Diploma pilot candidates had to say about the qualification.
"The IR Diploma was a great opportunity for me to spend some time identifying gaps in my practical skillset and remedying them. The case study method used on the course means the knowledge you gain is immediately applicable and the opportunity to discuss practical issues with peers was invaluable. I would highly recommend the course for senior IR professionals looking to develop their practical skillset"
Andrew Downey MIRSoc DipIR, Head of Investor Relations, CYGB Plc
“It’s a safe environment to talk about real issues with your peers – the best way to learn. It’s invaluable to discuss how to handle the Big IR challenges before you find yourself dealing with one of them. The core expertise of IR is as much about a way of thinking as it is a syllabus to learn by heart.”
Tom Randell MIRSoc DipIR, Head of Investor Relations and Communications at John Laing
“We expect the Diploma in IR to become the de facto qualification for anyone looking to reach the most senior levels in our profession”
David Lloyd-Seed MIRSoc, Chair of the IR Society
