Governance is a serious issue for a range of organisations and ensuring you have best practice framework is important. In this half day intensive workshop we take you through the core elements of what best practice governance frameworks are, why they are important and why they can be useful to your organisation to assist in its growth or development.


We take a look at what defines good members, how to build performance indicators around individual members and the broader board, developing board member job descriptions, why the constitution or trust deed is important and why it is sometimes necessary to ensure that board performance is both measured and understood.


This step through process will provide you with the skills and tools necessary to head back to your organisation and conduct an initial review of current structures and to plan ahead of the implementation of potential new and improved processes and frameworks.

  1. What does a best practice governance framework look like
