This workshop is aimed at Chairs who are new in post or about to take up the post.
The focus is on the role in practice, for example looking at preparing and chairing board meetings, working with your CEO/lead officer, as well as building a collaborative and effective governing body.
The session will also explore the leadership skills and knowledge that will make you the most effective Chair you can become – and the support that you might need.
The emphasis will be on the strengths you bring, as well as the ‘gaps’ you want to fill. And we will offer some tips that might be useful in your particular setting.
Feedback from our first New Chairs’ Briefing:
It was a God-send that the AoC happened to be running the New Chairs Briefing the week after I officially took up a new Chairing role. I have already attended two AoC events and both have been extremely helpful, so much so that I became a member after the first one! The New Chairs Briefing provided useful content, helpful sign-posting, and good networking with others who are facing the same issues.
