Manchester - Managing Relationships and Board Dynamics

Wednesday 8th May 2019

Date & Time of Training: 

8 May, 2019 - 13:30 to 17:15

Venue: Manchester - TBC

Are you Chair of a smaller charity? Looking to get the best from your trustees and staff team?

The leadership role of Chair means that you need to manage dynamics amongst your trustees and between your trustees and staff or volunteers.  This can be a complex and challenging task.

This pilot workshop aims to provide you with practical guidance and tools to help you navigate this challenge and effectively work with your trustees and key individuals such as your CEO or operational lead.  It has been developed with the complexities of chairing a smaller organisation in mind (with an annual income of under £1 million); such as the executive role often being in a part-time or voluntary capacity and individuals often having both operational and governance roles.  You will have the opportunity to share learning with Chairs of other smaller organisations.

By the end of the workshop you will:

  • Understand what will help you get the best from your trustees
  • Have tools to work effectively with your CEO and or senior team
  • Have ideas for identifying, recruiting and effectively working with new trustees
  • Gain insights and top tips from other Chairs of smaller organisations

Registration is from 1:15 pm to 1:30 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.

Attendance at Beacon Programme workshops could count towards your continuing professional development. Let us know if you need evidence of attendance.
