Governance and Strategic Thinking and Planning for Not for Profits

This workshop has 2 sessions on offer in the same block of time. Session 1 (3 hours duration) gives attendees a blend of understanding on Governance as well as with Strategic Thinking and Planning. Session 2 (1.5 hours) is optional and an opportunity where individuals/groups can follow up from the first session and begin to practically work on their own Strategy and Planning and Governance matters, with input and assistance from Carol. This will be a great chance to ask Carol questions and consolidate new learning.

This workshop will cover:

Session 1 will explore the new expectations of boards of not for profits including the important strategic leadership role. Part one will cover an easy way to understand the role of the board compared to management including the legal responsibilities of board members. In Part 2 of the session, we will discuss the role of the board in strategy and how to ensure the organisation has a plan that gives clarity and can respond to the changing environment.

Session 2 (OPTIONAL) follows lunch and is a time where Carol can give more personalised/group assistance and input as you and your group work on or consider your own Plans and Strategy and consider your group's Governance needs and requirements. A great time to follow up the first session with some practical application and an opportunity to ask Carol some questions.
