Event Summary

Speakers: Philip Kirkpatrick (BWB) and Fiona Twycross, Head of Governance (Diabetes UK)

Governance reviews can overhaul an organisation’s approach and processes related to how it governs itself, strengthen its board and how the board relates to its members, staff and volunteers. The success of a review can either stand are fall on how it is framed, the milestones for success and the routes by which the recommendations are agreed and implemented. Philip Kirkpatrick, partner BWB and Fiona Twycross, from Diabetes UK will share the essential steps to carrying out a successful Governance Review which will bring about lasting results.

Using the case study of a recent major review of governance at the health charity Diabetes UK, the presentation will go through the pitfalls and benefits of a review process including the following:

• What do we mean by a Governance Review?

• (Why) do you need a Governance Review?

• What steps should you follow?

• How do you measure success of a Review?
