Our Spring Forum was held on Tuesday 10th March

We welcomed back Simon Richards who ran a session for all governors on governing bodies or trust boards looking at Preparing your board for the future

This interactive workshop was based on the National Governance Association’s published guidance to support succession planning, and covered topics such as establishing a culture of succession, using a succession cycle, developing governors and ensuring leadership of the board.  The workshop explored what good chairing looks like, the barriers to succession and ways to overcome the common barriers.  Every delegate received a hard copy version of “Preparing your board for the future” to take away.
Session aims
·         To understand the importance and principles of succession planning
·         To define an effective culture for succession
·         To reflect on barriers to succession and develop a succession strategy.
