Getting the best out of your board delivered by Steve Giles
It is essential that the performance of any team is regularly reviewed and the board is no exception. Having completed this session, delegates should be able to describe the key benefits of conducting a board evaluation, as well as being able to outline the main attributes to an effective board evaluation process.
Leading from the chair delivered by David Joel
The role of the chair in an organisation is often misunderstood and regularly becomes confused with the role of the CEO. A chair’s role is far more than organising and managing the process of board meeting execution. This session will clarify the chair’s leadership role in order to unleash the value creating potential of the board.
The role of the trustee delivered by Deborah Benson
Understanding the principles of good governance, and being aware of their legal duties, are critical success factors for any trustee or director. Delegates will leave with a thorough understanding of the role and core responsibilities of a third sector trustee or director, as well as being equipped to tackle ethical dilemmas with greater awareness of best practice.
Renewing your license to lead delivered by John Blakey
This workshop, based on the contents of the acclaimed book ‘The Trusted Executive’, will help attendees anticipate the trust-building challenge through focusing upon the three pillars and nine habits of high-trust leadership. Participants will be enabled to develop a leadership style that is fit for purpose in the new leadership world.
