Part of the Skills Match webinar series, this event will provide guidance for professionals from the business and voluntary sector on how to become a great Board member and how to inspire your organisation’s Board to most effectively support your work.

Now more than ever, an effective and strong Board is needed to navigate charities through these very uncertain times. Key strategic decisions need to be made which will ensure the sustainability of the organisation into the future, so it is vital that a robust Board with the necessary skills is in place.

This webinar agenda will cover:

  • What makes an effective Board for your charity
  • How to get the most out of the Board members
  • How you can use your skills, experience, and knowledge on the Board of a charity
  • What you can gain from being a Board member

Webinar speakers:

  • Ian Henry, Director, Henry Brothers
  • Laura Hourican, Senior Vice-President, Firstsource
  • Richard Armstrong, Associate Partner, Arthur Cox
  • Olwen Lyner, Chief Executive, NIACRO

Richard Armstrong is an Associate Partner with Arthur Cox solicitors in Belfast and will share the key attributes of an effective Board. He will share some of the common features that are vital in any Board and explain how governance is critical in the running of an organisation.

Laura, Ian and Olwen will then share their experience of being part of a Board – why they got involved, how this is a two-way partnership, and why they would encourage other people to do the same.

This webinar is aimed at professionals from both the business and voluntary and community sector; and anyone who is considering being part of a Board.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
