Event description


Practical ways to enhance your board’s effectiveness

A Mazars event in collaboration with East London Business Alliance.

There has been much focus on challenges in the charity sector in recent years highlighting the need for charity boards to be active in checking the effectiveness of their governance which is especially important in the current environment where many charities have had to cope with substantial reductions in funding from central and local government over a number of years.

Using the Charity Governance Code for Smaller Charities, this roundtable for trustees and members of senior management will look at practical steps charity board can take to enhance their effectiveness and thereby the positive impact they are able to create for their beneficiaries.

The roundtable will consider the seven principles of the code:

1 Organisational purpose

2 Leadership

3 Integrity

4 Decision-making, risk and control

5 Board effectiveness

6 Diversity

7 Openness and accountability

In considering how best to apply the principles, the roundtable will focus on key outcomes and recommended practice, as covered in the code. It will also discuss frequently experienced challenges and how to develop an action plan for your board identifying the changes that will make the greatest contribution to enhanced board effectiveness.

The roundtable will be introduced by Jonathan Tait, Programme manager, East London BusinessAlliance (ELBA) and will be followed by introductory presentations by:

Anthony Carey, a partner at Mazars and Head of its Board Practice, and a charity trustee, who will discuss the principles outlined above with particular reference to board effectiveness

Dr Heather Buckingham, Director of Research and Policy at the Church Urban Fund who will focus on values, culture, and impact, and the connections between them.

The event is very much intended to be an interactive roundtable providing opportunities for participants to share their experiences and thoughts both on challenges encountered and examples of good practice.

Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
