Our Festival of Trusteeship 2021 was amazing!

 A phenomenal 1,999 people attended 24 sessions with 15 speakers, 20 panelists and two moderators across five days.

If you missed out on attending the Festival of Trusteeship, you can still reap the benefits. Download the recordings box set for £20 and listen to all 24 sessions at your leisure. Find out what included in the sessions, below. 

The schedule was stuffed with exciting events for people who want to become trustees, trustees who want to keep learning and developing, and for charity leaders who want to understand best practice in trustee recruitment and diversity.

 

We had an action-packed week with workshops, webinars, panel discussions, and more. The sessions were easy to identify streams, according to whether you're an aspiring trustee, an existing trustee looking for training to skill up, a charity leader who wants to diversify their board, or anyone up for taking part in a lively and informed discussion about what trusteeship means in 2021. 

All of this was made possible by our brilliant sponsors Ecclesiastical Insurance. Thanks to their generosity we're able to make the festival as affordable as possible.

Refining skills

 

These sessions are all about bringing your charity board leadership to the fore and making sure that your governance expertise is up to speed. 

 

We've covered your duties to safeguard staff and volunteers, how to measure impact, how to turboboost your fundraising abilities and much more. 

Discussions

 

The Festival of Trusteeship discussions were by turns electrifying, educating and thought provoking with takeaways to help you in your trustee work and trustee journey aplenty.  

 

Our panelists were the chairs, CEOs and trustees currently leading the national debate on trustee diversity and influencing policy on how we work for better inclusion and equity in the third sector.
