Workshop: Director Training 2018

Why you need to be there

This workshop will be run in partnership with the Non-Executive Directors Association (NEDA) and will equip Non-Executive Directors (NED’s) and aspiring NED’s with the skillset they need to become ‘board ready’ Directors within the Sport and Recreation Sector. The training will look at the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of directors, advice on best practice in the boardroom and will look at how NED’s can apply principles of good governance to their board.

This training has been developed specifically for the sector and will look to identify the challenges and skills required of a Director in the Sport and Recreation sector. The training will benefit both newly appointed directors and aspiring directors, and will also provide a useful professional development opportunity for more experienced non-executives looking to refresh their knowledge. 

Interested in upskilling a number of your Directors at once? If so we can arrange bespoke courses - to find out more contact our Governance Team
