During national Trustees Week, gunnercooke invites you to join a free trustee training event on Wednesday 3rd November at 9am.

There are over 1 million trustees giving of their time to ensure that charities succeed. Understanding their role is key to delivering charitable purpose to the best effect.

Whether you are thinking about becoming a trustee, have started your journey, or are in need of refreshing your skills, our practical and user-friendly session will help you understand what you are taking on and what running a charity is really all about, including

  • your role
  • your legal responsibilities
  • your fiduciary duties
  • your liabilities
  • insurance
  • the regulators
  • governance
  • best practice
  • trustee induction
  • trustee succession planning
  • the role of the chair
  • founder’s syndrome
  • the benefits

There will also be opportunities to raise questions and share experiences.

The training will be delivered by Michele Price, a Legal 500 recognised charity lawyer with a wealth of experience, in house and in private practice, of advising charities of all sizes. She also ran a startup charity at executive level for 5 years and is currently a charity trustee, so she really knows the challenges that trustees face from the inside out.
