"A book every charity trustee and CEO...should read, no matter how long they have been in the role" Ewan Aitken, CEO, Cyrenians
Nothing really prepares you for what it’s like to become a board member of a charity you believe in; nothing, that is, until now. This book talks you through how to become a brilliant board member, carry out your roles effectively and even enjoy the experience.
Written by a former board member, for board members, each chapter outlines the key approaches to take to become part of an empowered and brilliant board. Discover the principles of Governing with Purpose, and why governance and leadership form the core virtues of board members. Above all, it speaks to the value of your role as a lay person in leading a charity to achieve its objectives.
