Trustee Masterclass - Recruitment

A good Board of Trustees is vital for the sustainability of every charity or not for profit organisation. Each trustee has the opportunity to bring a wealth of experience and skills to their organisation and to contribute to its impact and overall success. However, the role of a trustee can also be particularly challenging, especially in this fast changing environment. Our free 'Trustee Masterclass' focuses on trustee recruitment and aims to provide you with the knowledge and tools to go out and recruit top talent to your Board.
Delivered by experts in the field and including a range of ideas, experiences and practical resources to help you, this training will cover all the key elements of trustee recruitment. It is particularly suited to anyone in an organisation who has responsibility for recruiting new Board members. Read more and book your place here.
