Workshop: Building excellent relationships between charity staff and boards

The Guernsey Community Foundation

This is a unique opportunity to meet two UK voluntary sector leaders, and discuss how excellent relationships between staff and board members can be built up and kept strong.

How do charity boards differ from boards in business? How can staff effectively feed back to, and work with, their board members, and what is the role of a an effective Chair in a charity context? Where does diversity come in to ensuring a successful staff-board relationship? We will be discussing these questions and more and will be drawing heavily on the depth of guests' own experiences as voluntary sector professionals and board members.

Matt is formerly Chief Executive of the National Union of Students and is currently a trustee of Step Up To Serve, an organisation which encourages youth volunteering. He is a trustee of Comic Relief, a patron of UNLOCK and was previously Vice-Chair of the National Council for Organisation for Voluntary Organisations. Ruth was Chair of the Association of Chairs from 2014 to September 2019 and has served as the Vice Chair of Acevo.

The session will be facilitated by James Partridge OBE, founder of the charity Changing Faces and Community Foundation director.

Lunch, tea and coffee will be provided by Les Cotils. Places are first come, first served, so please register on Eventbrite as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
