Essential Guide to Good Governance Workshop

The aim of this workshop is to understand the importance of good governance and particularly the role of the leadership team in delivering an organisation's stated purpose.

The session will be particularly useful to new trustees or those that are unsure about their role. More experienced trustees who feel they need to be reminded of or refocus on a basic approach to good governance principles may also benefit from attending.

  • How charities are structured and how that impacts on governance issues.
  • Governing documents.
  • The role of charity trustees.
  • Relationships between trustees and senior staff.
  • Strategic planning.
  • Setting targets and performance measures.
  • The structure of the board of trustees.
  • How the trustees convert plans to action.
  • Creating the right culture to achieve objectives.
  • Financial management and managing resources.
  • Transparency and accountability.
  • Risk management.
  • Action planning.

By the end of the workshops participants will understand and be able to explain what is meant by good governance, how it is practised in their charity and the steps they need to take to improve governance in their charity.
