The Role of the Trustee: Understanding and Strengthening Governance

Your role as a Trustee

Whether you are new to being a Trustee and are wanting to learn more about the role and what you should be doing, or if you have been a Trustee for some time and want a refresh and update, then this course is for you. You will go away equipped with the tools, knowledge and confidence needed to make an effective contribution to your Board.

We will be learning about the role of being a charity Trustee, both the legal and formal governance responsibilities, and also the inter-personal aspects of working with fellow Trustees, and staff. The training will involve teaching, as well as interaction and opportunities to share your own experience and explore case studies.

Our trainer is Pete Hawkins. Pete has worked in charities for 27 years and is a highly respected charity consultant. As well as training and facilitation, he provides services ranging from governance and organisation reviews to mergers and closures, to strategy development and coaching. His vast experience is with charities across the UK and internationally, as well as for funders; with causes ranging from ancient trees to learning disability to heritage buildings. His style is relaxed, informative and engaging.
