Strengthening your Organisation
Tuesday 27 November 2018 2:00 pm - 5:45 pm Leeds

This is the Leeds date for the second Beacon workshop which aims to provide you with the knowledge and tools to ensure your charity has the strategy, resources and processes to succeed. This workshop will help you to be clear about what needs to be in place and ensure that it happens. It will support you to identify the boundaries between planning and overseeing the work and the separate task of carrying it out. You will have the opportunity to share learning and sources of support with Chairs of other smaller organisations.

This workshop is only open to those who have registered with the Beacon Programme. If you are the Chair or Vice Chair of a smaller charity in England with an annual income of under £1 million, please join the programme and then book your place.


Bookings are now closed for this past event.

Recognising and reporting serious incidents- what you need to know
Tuesday 20 November 2018 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm Liverpool

The aim of the workshop is to provide an opportunity to hear about the way in which the Charity Commission views serious incidents and how they handle the reports which are made to them. This is about helping you understand the reasons for reporting a serious incident in your charity. Whilst the circumstances of incidents vary in type and in the impact they have, Chairs and trustees can work to limit the likelihood of an incident happening and to minimise the impact on the charity when they do. We will take a closer look at fraud and safeguarding as these are areas where serious incidents are most common. Representatives of the Charity Commission will talk to us about their approach to these issues and lead group discussions on the issues.

Dynamic Duo – Balancing the Roles Between Chair and CEO
Thursday 15 November 2018 10:30 am - 4:00 pm Leeds

When the relationship between Chair and Chief Executive is strong – they are a ‘dynamic duo’ – both adding value to the organisation. When the relationship is in trouble the organisation suffers. This event explores how to balance the roles and how to bring out the best in each other by looking at the CEO/Chair relationship from both perspectives. It is an opportunity for you to hear from and share ideas with your peers. Topics that will be covered include: what does the relationship look like when it works well, practical realities and experiences from Chairs and CEOs, and how to establish and develop a supportive culture and deal with conflict.
