About the Event

Emerging Chairs - a programme to support those taking on charity leadership roles.

The acclaimed Trustee Leadership Programme has now launched an enriching career development opportunity, offered over one day, to cover the key considerations and skills needed to chair a Board of Trustees.

Too often Trustees find themselves chairing a Board with the ultimate responsibility for the charity’s success and sustainability but with little support or training.  Just as with any organisation, the buck stops with its leadership and Chairs of charities need to feel empowered to know what is expected of them.

The programme is suitable for those who aspire to become Chairs of a charity or for existing Chairs who wish to progress and develop within their role.  All participants must have experience as charity Trustees. These practical sessions will also provide time for Q&A.

The programme will take place virtually via Zoom.

Emerging Chairs Programme: 29th November 2023, 9:30am - 4:30pm

- Module 1: Leading a Board of Trustees

- Module 2: Supporting the Senior Management Team

- Module 3: Developing a Long-Term Business Plan and Strategy

- Module 4: Fundraising and Marketing

- Module 5: Challenges for Charity Chairs

The Emerging Chairs Programme is now Approved by the Institute of Leadership & Management, so participants can now opt to receive certification on completion of the course. This is a valuable way to demonstrate your continuing professional development and to showcase your commitment to becoming an effective board member.
