Course overview

The current challenges facing the NHS today means that time is an increasingly precious commodity and all meetings need to be optimised to meet objectives.

This practical training is designed to develop the chairing skills of board members, senior executives and managers who chair board or committee meetings within NHS trusts and foundation trusts.

During the training there will be the opportunity to not only learn from peers but to participate in interactive exercises to explore good practice in the chairing of meetings to help you plan, structure and manage your meetings effectively.

Who should attend?

“Just wish I'd had this training earlier in my NED career... should be compulsory for all new Chairs in NHS Organisations. Excellent use of limited time. A good mix of teaching and learning, practical application and sharing experiences. Thoroughly enjoyed it”
