Training & Events

It’s one of the most important relationships within a charity, yet the most overlooked is the link between the CEO and Chair of trustees. In theory, the Chair is there to support both the CEO and the board. In practice, it can be complex and one-sided but, at times, genuinely remarkable when both parties understand their role and step up.

Join is as D’arcy Myers from Getting on Board, talks through the role of Chair.

Looking at topic as;

  • The role and responsibilities of the Chairperson
  • Why it is essential for a good relationship between Chair and CEO
  • What the pitfalls can be
  • How to avoid a bad relationship and develop a good one

D’Arcy will then be joined by a panel of experts who have experienced the relationship from either side and can talk from a personal perspective on how they have dealt with the good, bad and the ugly.

Who is this for?
  • Chairs
  • Vice-chairs
  • CEO’s
  • Deputy CEOs
  • Anyone interested
Can I ask questions?

The panel will discuss the topic further after the presentation using their personal experiences and stories. Here, there will be the opportunity to ask questions. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee that all questions will be asked.
