Emerging Chairs Programme - Manchester Autumn 2019

14 November 2019

The acclaimed Trustee Leadership Programme has now launched an enriching career development opportunity, offered over three sessions, to cover the key considerations and skills needed to chair a Board of Trustees. 

Too often Trustees find themselves chairing a Board with the ultimate responsibility for the charity’s success and sustainability but with little support or training. Just as with any organisation, the buck stops with its leadership and Chairs of charities need to feel empowered to know what is expected of them.

The programme is suitable for those who aspire to become Chairs of a charity or for existing Chairs who wish to progress and develop within their role. All participants must have experience as charity Trustees. These practical sessions will also provide time for Q&A and networking. 


Course Breakdown:

Module 1: Leading a Board of Trustees

Module 2: Supporting the Senior Management Team

Module 3: Developing a Long-Term Business Plan and Strategy
