Saturday 10th November:

Workshop: Planning processes for Trustees

10.00 – 12.30 pm in the garden room at the charming 1907 Arts and Craft style building The Letchworth Settlement followed by a networking lunch.

This is a short course aimed at reviewing effective strategic planning and budget setting processes across a five-year cycle. It covers planning, from agreeing the mission to developing a strategic direction. It includes setting targets and milestones and monitoring progress against these. It also considers in brief the vital skills of managing risks and environment scanning.

This course is useful as a refresher for experienced trustees or as a good basic introduction for new trustees. To book, please see our page on Eventbrite where you can pay by credit card, paypal or cheque or request an invoice.
