Trustee Exchange

The Trustee Exchange one-day conference is an excellent opportunity for all trustees to benefit from stimulating presentations, workshops and interactive sessions to gain fresh insights to help your board operate more effectively and efficiently. The day also gives you the perfect chance to network face-to-face with other board members who tackle similar issues, share ideas and find solutions to develop best practice.

Too much focus on reputational risk?

Risks must always be weighed up against potential benefits, says Dorothy Dalton.
