Organisations in crisis: the role of trustees

  • Start: 19th June, 2024 @ 4:30PM
  • End: 19th June, 2024 @ 5:30PM
  • Online

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.

Trustees need to be able to navigate an eye-watering range of crises, from key staff departing to safeguarding concerns, from running out of money to fighting on the board.

Although this one-hour session can’t possibly cover all of the possible crises which might befall a charity, it will cover prevention and resolution for some of the most common crises in charities.

This session will include:

  • Identifying and mitigating the most likely issues before they become serious
  • Running out of money
  • Losing key people
  • Governance failures
  • Serious incident reporting to the Charity Commission
  • Crisis communications
  • Closing an organisation down
