Effective Board and Members meetings; Covid-19 and beyond

7 October 2020

This webinar took place on Tuesday 6 October 2020 and is now available on-demand.

In this webinar Education Partners Nick MacKenzie and Dominic Swift discuss the approach to members and board meetings in the ‘new normal’. They will consider the benefits of virtual meetings (enforced by socially distancing measures and covered in their previous webinar during lockdown) and discuss how in the longer-term, boards might combine virtual and in-person meetings to be more effective.

Join the discussion with Nick and Dom, which will also consider:

  • Interactions between the board and executive leaders, including the key relationship between the CEO and Chair
  • The dynamic between members and boards and how in practice the members can support the effective governance of the trust
  • Setting the agenda
  • Managing risk

Throughout the discussion, Nick and Dom will draw upon their own experiences, in both a legal and board capacity and share examples of best practice the team are seeing rolling out from the sector.

Please register or click "already registered" if you've registered previously to view our on-demand video. Alternatively, a link to the webinar will be shared on our website and LinkedIn page in due course.
