Onboard Summer Summit

Hear about the very latest legal developments, ideas and thinking in governance. Come prepared to hear and share your thoughts around these topics:

The big picture - Ian Oakley-Smith will speak about the hallmarks of a successful charity and how trends impact on the governance of your organisation. Ian will outline the key findings of the latest "Managing in the New Normal" survey report and will consider the main priorities for Boards in the current environment.

Digital governance and big data – Are some of us drinking the kool-aid? Or are the others missing the boat? Just because a topic is, as big data is, subject to massive hype, doesn’t mean it has no value. Dai Clegg’s talk is intended to help organisations to improve their use of data, and avoid wasting resources as they find out how best to do that.

Leadership - Unleashing The Potential of Your Chair - Rosalind Oakley, CEO of the Association of Chairs, will discuss how using 'The Chairs Compass' can make a difference.
