Course details: 
The relationships between all stakeholders are essential to the overall wellbeing of a charity. However, the relationship between the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and the Charity Trustees is the most crucial. It has potentially the greatest influence on organisational success. 
In this special event for charity CEOs and managers, join Deirdre Garvey, CEO of The Wheel, as she explores this key element of both good management and good governance.
Among the areas for consideration will be:
  • What a good relationship looks and feels like
  • Understanding the roles from various perspectives 
  • Difficult conversations, difficult decisions
  • Working together to achieve goals.
