As trustees and senior managers, you are responsible for the good governance of your organisation. It’s a vital part of how civil society organisations operate. We believe good governance = good performance (and more funding!).
To support you to achieve this, we are running this short blitz session looking at the principles of governance for the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. We’ll look at trustee responsibilities, various approaches to good governance and work through some examples. We encourage great dialogue and peer learning so please bring your challenges to the session for discussion.
This workshop will be delivered by Gareth Hart. Gareth is the founder and director of Iridescent Ideas (a social enterprise business advice firm) and has been a champion of the social enterprise movement in Plymouth and the South West of the UK. He was the elected chair of Plymouth Social Enterprise Network for seven years 2013-2020 and chairs Plymouth’s Inclusive Growth Group.
Gareth led Plymouth’s successful bid to become the first ‘Social Enterprise City’ in the UK and has a history of working successfully with a range of social enterprises from tiny start-ups to national organizations on issues such as governance, social investment and social impact.
Registered attendees will receive a Zoom link by email a few days before the session. Zoom training resources can be found here.
