Director's Signpost: Your guide to directorship

by Australian Institute of Company Directors

Director's Signpost

This is an essential book for new and emerging directors, covering directorship, governance, board operations, professional development and more.


While becoming a company director can be a matter of lodging the right paperwork with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC), the actual role in practice is challenging and demanding. Not only is it essential to know your legal duties, responsibilities and rights, but the more you grow in your understanding of directorship and governance, the more benefits you bring to the organisation you govern.

With over three million Australian directorships and an average of 15,000 new companies registered each month with ASIC, the director community is growing at a rapid rate.

Director's Signpost, aimed at emerging company and non-executive directors, covers the spectrum of directorship and includes insights from twelve directors – both new and experienced – across several topics ranging from taking part in board discussions and finding new board positions to financial literacy for directors.


"Being good at whatever you did before doesn't mean you will automatically be a good director. You have to be prepared to have an inquiring mind and work at it.
