What others say

Clearly articulated with a wide range of information provided and questions answered. Having a guest speaker and charity speed dating really brought it to life and gave meaning and context. - Lucy C-W, Local Government

Extremely helpful. It provided a real insight into the work of trustees. I liked the ability to ask questions of the Trustees and gain an understanding of the needs and issues faced by their charities. I’d definitely recommend. – Debbie K, Government solicitor
