Event description

Description

Good governance in the charity board room – creating the right culture. This course is suitable for chairs, trustees, chief executives and other charity governance professionals.

A strong and supportive board is an asset to any charity, and can be of great value to the chief executive. With capable, committed people round the board table, a culture of engagement, understanding and support can be developed, giving cover in the bad times and celebrating success in the good times.

Developing a truly effective board takes planning, time and focus. It’s a continual journey, rather than a one-off event.

This one-day course is a must for those wishing to build an effective board or those helping their board with succession planning and governance strengthening.

The workshop will consider:

  • Dealing with uncertainty - what do we need from our board in today’s world?
  • Sustainability and succession - what needs to happen to build and retain the board we need?
  • What’s holding us back from that and what can we do?
  • How systems, processes and administration can support the development
  • The components of effective recruitment, induction and ongoing board support
  • The benefits and approaches to board review
  • How you will implement changes for your organisation.
