Trustee Matching & Networking Event
Tue 8 November 2016, 18:00 – 21:00 GMT
8th November | 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm – Following on from last year’s successful event, we’re delighted to be partnering with Trustees’ Week once again.
Join us for this relaxed and informal event if your charity is looking for trustees or you’re interested in becoming a trustee yourself. You’ll be able to talk to charities that are recruiting and find out the skills required and what it’s really all about!
Being a trustee can enhance your leadership skills and be a very fulfilling experience. It’s a great opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people and directly influence an organisation or cause that you care about.
Includes refreshments and nibbles! Our friendly facilitators will meet and greet you and ensure that you are introduced to some interesting people, whether you come alone, or with colleagues and friends.

6.00pm Registration & networking
6.15pm Welcome and introductions – charities recruiting trustees give a 30 second pitch of their opportunities/skills sought
