Trustee governance training

charity-governance-training.jpgMy trustee governance training will enable your staff and trustees to fully understand your trustees’ duties and responsibilities and learn best practice in charity governance.

Your trustees will understand the implications of your charity’s governing document, and understand your charity’s finances.

Giving you just what you need

Together we can tailor-make in-house trustee governance training, for example including:

  • Keeping current: how things are shifting in charity governance
  • Effective meetings: agendas, information levels, systematic decision-making
  • Meeting your responsibilities: the key things you need to know about being a charity trustee
  • Welcome to the hot seat: governance issues for new charity chairs
  • Cutting through the jargon: understanding a set of charity accounts
  • Operating safely: developing a robust reserves policy
  • Working effectively: how to monitor your board’s performance
  • Active monitoring: what metrics trustees and key staff should be looking at, and what they mean
  • Update on charity law developments


I can deliver your trustee governance training in the format which suits you:

  • 45-minute training sessions as part of  trustee meetings
  • half-day courses
  • one day courses
  • facilitation of workshop sessions,
  • away-days
  • one-to-one coaching
  • small group coaching

And I can supplement my own expertises by co-presenting with a carefully chosen small group of associates who each have their own in-depth charity governance areas of specialism.

With a light touch

It’s not in my nature to be dull!  I will make sure my training provides your team with an engaging, accessible, and value-added training experience.

And open to all

And for smaller charities, or individuals newly joining the sector, I also offer open courses.
