Trustee Leadership Programme - Manchester, Autumn 2019

13 November 2019

Created and delivered by social enterprise Cause4 in partnership with Close Brothers Asset Management and the Clothworkers’ Company, this acclaimed Trustee Leadership Programme will give you the skills and confidence that you need to join a charity as a board member.

An enriching career development opportunity offered over one day, the programme will cover the key responsibilities of Trustees and other regulatory issues. As part of our unique Trustee matching service, you will meet charities looking for Trustees and there will be an opportunity to receive accreditation from the Institute of Leadership Management. You will also receive first-hand insights from senior charity experts and there will be time for Q&A and networking.
