Getting On Board – ‘How not to be a prat on a board’

  • Start: 27th February, 2024 @ 4:30PM
  • End: 27th February, 2024 @ 5:30PM
  • Online

Join Penny Wilson, CEO of Getting on Board, and a panel of trustees to discuss how we can banish our inner prat when we serve on trustee boards.

All trustees have the ability to behave unhelpfully. Whether it’s correcting the grammar in a report, not reading the papers or suggesting that your charity manager gives Richard Branson a ring to get some funds.

We’ll share our own previous poor behaviour, we’ll discuss what makes trustees behave badly and then we’ll propose what organisations can do to help trustees banish their inner twit.
