Are you board ready? How might a board position provide an opportunity to give back, grow and get ahead? Do you value diversity of thought and reflect on your contribution to good and effective governance?
If the answer is ‘yes’, then why not join Edinburgh Napier University’s short course: Leadership in Board Governance (LiBG).
The LiBG course provides a valuable opportunity for existing board members and senior staff to enhance their contribution to good and effective governance. The course includes four days of sessions between March and May. Provided by academic, practitioner and guest speakers including a board simulation, reflective practice and peer mentoring.
Our next intake is March 2018 and spaces are now limited. You can find out more and download an application form here. This is what our last cohort said about the course:
Karen Gribben, Senior Legal Counsel (Routes) at Rail Infrastructure Limited and Board Member at Wishaw and District Housing Association (WDHA) “I think the course has been outstanding. I think that if you think you know governance, you don’t, and you need to come onto this course. It will really challenge your thinking. It’s not just for charitable or trust organisations. Directors would really benefit to understand how they can work more in partnership with their board.”
Alasdair Perry, Deputy Assistant Chief Officer at Scottish Fire and Rescue Service “I’ve found the course valuable and I would strongly recommend it to others. It’s given me a broader perspective of working on a board, and a greater understanding of how to work with the board at my organisation.”
Jacqueline McCutcheon, Corporate Services Manager at Patrick Housing Association “I’d definitely recommend the course. It’s beneficial in terms of understanding responsibilities of board members and trustees, as well as business within a wider context.”
The LiBG course is bought to you by the International Centre for Management and Governance Research (ICMGR). You can find out about a host of initiatives, events and research that we conduct in the area of leadership in board governance here.
