A Board Away Day, which can be conducted on site or remotely, can provide much needed time and space to develop an institution’s vision, nurture relationships between members and encourage new approaches.
We facilitate and lead away days that focus on strategy, training and induction, allowing Governors to concentrate on key points for your institution, including:
- exploring key sector-wide issues and their implications for your institution
- reviewing the effectiveness of governing body and senior team relations and ways of working
- institutional ethos and culture
- responding to the changing regulatory approach to HE e.g. in England
- developing the effectiveness of committees such as remuneration, estates, finance, or audit
- monitoring performance against strategic plans
- striking the balance between governance and management.
