Past events

To give you an idea of the range of events we hold we have listed our past events below. In 2015 we hosted over 20 professional development and networking events for Chairs across the UK. Members can obtain summaries of some of these events from the members area of the website.


Haven’t had time to attend one of our workshops?  Would like a refresher?  This webinar covers the core content covered in the Beacon Programme’s ‘Managing Relationships and Board Dynamics’ workshop.

The webinar aims to provide you with practical guidance and tools to help you manage dynamics amongst your trustees and between your trustees and staff or volunteers. It has been developed with the complexities of chairing a smaller organisation in mind (with an annual income of under £1 million); such as the executive role often being in a part-time or voluntary capacity and individuals often having both operational and governance roles. You will have the opportunity to share learning with Chairs of other smaller organisations.

This webinars 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.
