IBU - Reetu

Whilst the national restrictions are in place, we will introduce a number of additional online activities so grab your plate and join us for our weekly IBU Lunch & Learn each Friday at 1PM.

This week we have Reetu with “Building your Board of Advisors”.

Who, What, How – Developing Your Advisory Board, in a Nutshell

Your board of advisors (trustee board/committee members) can be a massive help – or a real hindrance… You want to make the most of the people involved at the most senior level, and they want to make the most of being involved with your board. Take away some top tips to help you recruit the right people, set up your board to suit your needs, and set a strong board culture.

This session is ideal for:
