'Really helpful session which as a governor has better equipped me to hold the NEDs to account in my trust. The networking was also really useful'. Core skills course attendee
I enjoyed meeting people from other trusts, with different levels of experience...presenters were good, very positive and friendly'. Effective Questioning and Challenge course attendee
'Every governor should do this' Finance and business skills course attendee
'I felt the course was extremely valuable to governors and highlighted the importance of the statutory duty of appointing Chairs and non-executive directors. The course dealt with not only the practical issues of the recruitment, interview and appointment process but also the sensitivities around governor self-awareness and the impact this can have on potential candidates and the eventual recruitment of the ‘right person’. This was equally valuable for Company Secretaries as well as governors and I would whole-heartedly recommend attending these sessions. I look forward to what the other sessions have in store too!” (Debbie Henderson, Trust Secretary, Northumbria Healthcare NHS FT)
