  • People who manage people 
  • People who work with others on a day to day basis and would like to understand how to make the most of those relationships 

This is an interactive day, led by a Course Tutor whose expertise in governance is gained from having worked as an executive and non-executive in a range of cultural organisations.  Group work will be interspersed with examples of current good practice, providing opportunities to learn about the strategic role of the Board and to share experiences with each other.

  • Understand the key responsibilities of a Trustee or Board member
  • Understand the respective strategic/operational roles of Board/management
  • Be equipped for the future, with some insight into the likely challenges ahead for the sector
  •  Gain greater confidence in governing and/or supporting the governance of arts organisations
