LEADERS’ LAB - Board Renewal & Succession Planning

LEADERS’ LAB - Board Renewal & Succession Planning

By weaving together people who experience and face similar concerns, Leaders’ Lab was created with the aim of addressing various pertinent issues faced by non-profit leaders. We hope to foster better relationships amongst those in different sectors of the non-profit landscape, stimulating new ideas and the spirit of collaboration.

The focus of the upcoming session will be on Board Renewal & Succession Planning — being one of the recent proposed refinements to the Code of Governance. High performing boards are the work horses behind the growth of many non-profit organisations. A good renewal and succession plan will ensure that there is constant addition of new talents and perspectives to the board as well as greater diversity. Collectively, the Directors will have the knowledge and skills necessary to enhance the long-term performance of these organisations.

Together, we intend to stimulate sharing of best practices and provide an engaging platform for a fruitful evening of personal growth and learning.
