Improve Your Organisation’s Success With An Effective Board

Board builder


Research suggests that organisations that take an active and strategic approach to recruiting, nurturing and maintaining a strong board perform better.That should come as no surprise as we know that engaged board members can bring their skills, networks and insights to the table in a unique way that allows the organisation to see beyond day-to-day issues and keep the organisation focused on the longer term goals…. BUT it takes deliberate efforts and actions to build a great board.The one-day Board Builders Forum is designed specifically to support busy managers and board members to improve their insights, knowledge and effectiveness with a speaker line-up made up from those who have been on boards, have advised boards and have experienced the best and worst that boards can be – and they have two goals in mind: to help your board thrive and improve its strategic impact on the organisations it is to serve.

So if you are a CEO or senior manager working with a board, or are an existing or aspiring board member within a Not-For-Profit organisation we promise that you will build your knowledge of key success factors of effective boards, you will gain up-to-date insights around technical issues that impact every board member, and you can use the panel discussions and interactive workshops to explore areas where your board can improve. You will also learn from a network of other delegates and advisers who will be a resource as you build your impact.

We see the importance of building and nurturing effective boards and board members as one of the biggest challenges facing the NFP sector so have offered this high-impact Board-Builders Forum in two convenient locations at a modest registration cost – so register today to book your place. We have even offered a discount for multiple registrations making it easy for managers and board members to attend.
