The Role of the Chair, and Getting People Engaged

Participation is the purpose. Otherwise you may as well send an email. Sounds good in theory, but how do you actually do it when there are so many barriers and habits conspiring to get in the way?

This session will give you handy tips to get things done while you are having fun, overcome some of the most common barriers to participation, and use consensus in practice (without falling into 'group think').  

This session will be led by Garth Nowland-Foreman, an experienced trainer and facilitator, and not-for-profit governance expert. Garth is a director of LEAD Centre for Not-for-Profit Governance & Leadership 

Future session:

  • Weds. 4 August
  • Weds. 4 September
  • Weds. 2 October
  • Weds. 6 November
  • Weds. 4 December
