What does an effective board look like?
Do you enjoy your board meetings – or do you grit your teeth before they start and hope that you can last the course? Do these meetings fill you with dread - or do they leave you feeling energised and excited about your work?
The aim of this workshop is to explore the key factors in building an effective board and hopes to leave participants with a clear understanding of the key elements that contribute to a board’s effectiveness, and the resolve to discuss and debate with their board what measures, most appropriate to their own individual circumstances, would improve its functioning.
This session will look at:
- Setting the right agenda – what needs to be considered when and in what format?
- Getting the most out of meetings – how board member need to act to deliver results?
- Assessing performance – what does success look like?
This workshop is suitable for trustees and any charity staff or volunteers that are involved in the goverance of their particular charity.
