Being an Effective Chair

3rd March, 15:00-19:00, Edinburgh

Being an effective Chair means understanding the nature of the role, managing personalities and behaviours, and appreciating how these dynamics are shaped by the context in which the Board and the organisation operate. This workshop will explore the motivations and expectations of the Chair’s role and as well as the paradoxes and dilemmas inherent in it.

 

Income Generation: A Scottish Perspective

28th April, 15:00-19:00, Dundee

Scotland is unique in terms of charitable giving. This workshop will look at how, and how you can capitalise on this. We’ll encompass social, political, geographical and cultural differences to understand the Scottish zeitgeist and help you achieve income generation success.

 

Robust Relationships: Your Board, Your Organisation

1st Sept, 15:00-19:00, Edinburgh

The connections between the Chair, the Board, the Chief Officer and the organisation are intricate and can be the source of robust functioning or some very difficult dynamics. This masterclass will examine the relationships between the Chair and the rest of the organisation, and provide examples of good practice.

 

Successful Strategies: A Chair’s Perspective

8th October, 15:00-17:00, Dundee

This event will look at how to create effective strategies, what makes strategies successful, and, perhaps most importantly, how to achieve buy-in from the people involved in delivering it.
