At Stone King we’re running a series of interactive “Developing Mature Charity Governance” workshops, to extend and complement our established Trustee Training Programme. These new sessions have been specially developed following a consultation to establish what practical governance issues are of particular concern to charities. Numbers for these sessions are limited to enable focussed, interactive discussion.
We encourage you to get in touch with your discussion points prior to your session. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with anything you would like to discuss.
Advanced Trustee Training Sessions
Session Two, Proportionate, effective “risk management”, looks at:
- While risk management is important, it can become too central to governance and inhibiting to purpose.
- How can a healthy equilibrium be maintained?
- How can this be asserted against the regulatory tendency to over-emphasise prudence and caution?
Session Three, Acknowledging imperfection: effective governance relationships, looks at:
- While a Boards of Trustee is a legal construction, it is a human relationship forum managing humans. Where is more attention needed?
- Relationships include: chair to trustee; trustee to trustee; trustees to committee members; trustees to chief executive; chair to chief executive; trustees to other employees and volunteers.
- People are capable/less capable; loud/quiet; empathetic/demanding; committed/less committed; experienced/less experienced.
