This session is part of Getting on Board’s Trustee Learning Programme, providing free and high-quality training to support people to become and serve as effective trustees.

Every effective trustee needs to understand charity governance and their legal responsibilities (and we have just the webinar for that). However, being an impactful trustee requires more than this. Good governance is essential but not enough.

This session is for those trustees and aspiring trustees who have a passion to take their charity forward, to grow impact, to leave a personal legacy and feel the sense of personal fulfilment from the time they volunteer.

In this session we challenge an often held assumption that ‘good governance’ is the answer to achieving more effective charities. We’ll go beyond what is essential and arrive at what is sufficient. Join us for a challenging and potentially controversial webinar.

The webinar covers:

  • Common pitfalls for charity boards and how to avoid them
  • Interpreting sector-wide guidelines for the charity’s particular context
  • Managing risk and how to establish an appropriate level of risk
  • Your personal legacy

A recent attendee shared during the session, ‘In under 30mins, you have created at least 3 ah-ha moments and they have all rejuvenated the role of trustee and moved it to a place that first excited me about taking on such a role: creating social impact, supporting growth mindset and utilising risk to drive an organisation forward’

We recommend that you also attend our Onboarding webinar about the legal responsibilities of trustees.
