London, 15 November 2017 – ICSA: The Governance Institute is holding a Charity Leadership Workshop on 8 December to help support trustees, whose vital work is the current focus of Trustees Week.
According to Louise Thomson, Head of Policy (Not for Profit) at ICSA: “There are approximately 700,000 trustees in England and Wales, which is a sizeable number of volunteers needing help and guidance to support the charities that they serve. Trustees Week rightly highlights the vital role that trustees play in making the UK the sixth most giving country in the world. Our role is to provide them with the tools that they might need to help make the important decisions that the charities they serve invariably need.”
Taking place at ICSA’s Farringdon offices in London, the workshop will provide trustees, executives and governance professionals with an opportunity to discuss some of the core issues currently dominating the sector, including how to identify destructive personalities in the boardroom, improve trustee oversight and balance risk and reward.
Chaired by Ben Brice, Legal Director (Charities), Blake Morgan LLP and Chair, Cancer Support UK, the workshop will focus on the following key areas:
