Trustee Leadership Programme for the UK’s Leading Businesses and Charities

Introducing the one-day intensive Trustee Leadership Programme for the UK’s leading businesses and charities.

Are you looking to develop your business’ CSR strategy or personal development opportunities? Do you want to keep employee engagement and satisfaction high? If so, the Trustee Leadership Programme is for you! Sign up today to help employees develop their leadership skills, gain Board-level experience and strengthen the resilience of UK charities.

Created and delivered by social enterprise Cause4 in partnership with Close Brothers Asset Management and the Clothworkers’ Company, this award-winning Trustee Leadership Programme will give your employees the skills and confidence that they need to join a charity as a Board member.

Offered over an intensive one day programme, this enriching career development opportunity, covers the key responsibilities of Trustees and other regulatory issues. Your employees will receive first-hand insight from senior charity experts and there will be time for Q&A and networking.

Additionally, as part of our unique Trustee matching service, your employees will meet charities looking for Trustees and there will be an opportunity to receive accreditation from the Institute of Leadership Management.

Since the pilot programme in summer 2014 the Trustee Leadership programme has been a great success:

  • Over 818 professionals have taken part
  • Over 81% of survey respondents rate the course very good or excellent
  • Over 170 direct matches have taken place, leading to 55 confirmed Trustee appointments in charities, with many more in progress
