This online training, delivered across two (two-hour) sessions, will equip you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to become the meeting chairperson you want to be. Your booking will automatically register you for both sessions on 15 and 22 May 2024. Cost: £40 per participant


Who is this training for?

Anyone from a charity or community group who’d like to improve their skills and confidence in chairing meetings, particularly trustees (or board members/committee members) who are new to their role as chairperson. If you lack the confidence to “lead” a meeting, and/or have little to no experience doing so, this training is for you.

What will I learn from this training?

This training will be delivered across two (two-hour) sessions, which you're required to attend both of.

After attending Session 1, you’ll:

  • Understand the basics of chairing meetings
  • Have identified what you find difficult when chairing a meeting
  • Have found methods to challenge the difficulties you have

After attending Session 2, you’ll:

  • Have practiced chairing a meeting
  • Have received constructive feedback from your peers to learn from
  • Have improved your awareness, knowledge, skills and confidence in chairing

You’ll be issued a certificate of attendance following the completion of both sessions.
