Leading the board is designed to support those who are new to leading, or aspire to lead, a governing body (or committee) of a higher education institution. This event is delivered online with a focus on many of the current challenges of leading a board, including during a time of crisis such as the current COVID 19 situation.
Delivered with the support of the CUC – the membership body for Chairs of higher education institutions - the event will provide an opportunity to discuss and examine the role of the Chair in leading the board and the importance of creating a boardroom culture which enables effective governance, enabling attendees to develop confidence, skills and knowledge.
