It also provides practical advice on how to avoid some of the common pitfalls that Boards and Board Members can fall into and how to manage some of the crucial relationships within and outwith the Board.

In the past 25 years, David has trained more than 25,000 Board Members and senior executives from more than 700 public bodies in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (including local authorities).

Processes without intelligent scrutiny and challenge are not enough! In order to ensure that your organisation's key functions are delivered effectively, Board Members need to hold the organisation to account for its performance by offering purposeful and robust challenge and scrutiny. In this half day workshop, attendees will learn about the key pre-requisites to enable effective scrutiny and challenge to take place, the characteristics of effective scrutiny and how to scrutinise in practice.

When organisations get into difficulties and/or governance failure occurs, one of the first questions that is asked is "Where was the Audit and Risk Committee?"

In this half day workshop, delegates will gain a detailed understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the Audit and Risk Committee and practical guidance on the critical success factors that will determine whether or not an Audit and Risk Committee is successful.

We all know that it is the role of the Board to ensure that there are effective arrangements for risk management. However, what constitutes ‘effective’ and how Boards exercise their oversight role is often less clear. While Board Members do not have to be experts in risk management, they do need to understand what ‘good’ looks like and, importantly, how to scrutinise and challenge to establish the necessary assurances about its effectiveness.

In this half day workshop, delegates will learn what ‘good’ risk management looks like and receive practical guidance on how to exercise their oversight role effectively.
