On booking, you will be asked to choose TWO of the below workshops to attend:

1: Wolfberry - Damon Rands: An overview of cyber security. With the threat of Cyber-attack now magnified by GDPR and the penalties an organisation may face as the result of a breach, it is vital that organisations take steps to ensure they do everything they can to protect the data they hold. Wolfberry’s talk will highlight the five most common ways an organisation can be breached and fall foul of GDPR. Using a mixture of live hacks and real-world examples, we will show you the steps you should take to reduce the risk.

2: Bevan Buckland LLP - Alison Vickers: Trustees challenging the charity on its financial governance. One of the key legal duties of a trustee board is to oversee the finances of the charity. The session provides the trustees with what type of questions to ask of those responsible for the day to day work of the charity and what areas are important to challenge and understand.

3: WCVA (Wales Council for Voluntary Action) - Mair Rigby: How good governance can increase public trust & confidence. Charity Commission research shows that public trust in charities has declined in recent years. Several high-profile scandals in household name charities have damaged the reputation of the sector as a whole. In response, the Charity Commission has stated that charities should inspire public trust and confidence. This presentation will examine what went wrong in some of the recent cases and take you through a range of practical steps trustees can take to provide increased assurance that their charities are well-run and deserving of the trust that beneficiaries, donors, funders and the public place in them.

4: JCP Solicitors - Sarah Davies: An overview of what all tenants should be considering when they take on a commercial lease to include Lease Negotiations, Rent Review, Dilapidations and the Service of Notices. The issues to be considered in this session include: Heads of Terms and Lease Negotiations with a focus on repairing obligations, alienation, rent review and service charges. Sarah will also discuss break notices, Lease renewal and dilapidations.
