The performance of any not-for-profit organisation is underpinned by the relationship that exists between the CEO and Chair. The training explores this critical Management/Governance interface, and is relevant to both seasoned practitioners and those just stepping up to the top job.

The full-day training is led by governance expert Dorothy Dalton. Dorothy Dalton is a leading expert on Governance and advises several national charities, Boards of Governance and CEOs. Having written several books on Governance, Dorothy has gathered her wealth of experience from various roles including her time as Chief Executive with ACEVO (the association of chief executives of voluntary organisations) from 1992 to 2000, as a Director with Inland Revenue and the Marie Curie Foundation , and as Chairperson for the Petchey Academy since 2014.Click here to visit her website.
