The programme comprises free, high-quality training including webinars, clinics and panel discussions to support people to become and serve as effective trustees. 


Event Details

“As trustees, we need to get more comfortable with debate and disagreement in the boardroom.

An important element of good governance is being able to challenge assumptions, question prevailing norms, and encourage open discourse, thereby fostering a culture of critical thinking and continuous improvement within the organisation.

The Charity Governance Code says: “In an effective team, board members feel it is safe to suggest, question and challenge ideas and address, rather than avoid, difficult topics.”
