About this Event

Having a strong board of trustees or directors can be fundamental for determining the overall direction, effectiveness and accountability of a social impact organisation, whether you are a charity or private enterprise.

In this 90-minute webinar, we will explore the benefits of having a board, and the practical steps you need to take to achieve good governance.

Facilitated by Richard Kennell, CEO of award-winning charity, SOFEA, he will relate SOFEA’s journey in terms of building an effective board and you will also hear personal reflections from some of the charity’s trustees.

What will I learn?

  • What is a board?
  • Why do I need a board?
  • How do I form a board?
  • What makes an effective board?
  • How to deal with difficulties?
