BWB's Onboard governance development programme has released an essential new publication, Wired to Govern: a trustee's handbook for the digital revolution.

No organisation has been untouched by the rapid advances in technology we have seen in recent years. By 2020, it is estimated that 50 billion devices around the globe will be connected to the internet. For trustees of charities, those charged with overseeing the vision and strategic direction of their organisations, the digital revolution is a phenomenon that simply cannot be ignored.

Is your charity fully exploiting the potential of the digital transformation? Does your board understand the changes and demands technology makes in communicating with the public, beneficiaries, staff, volunteers and regulators? Have you considered the potential risks, from the loss of beneficiary data to cyber fraud; from reputational damage to the release of misinformation in blogs and emails? How can new technolgies such as board portals, video conferencing and social media transform your traditional governance practices?

Wired to Govern guides charity trustees through all the key considerations, with supporting case studies, checklists and template policies.

Onboard will be running two Wired to Govern seminars covering many of the issues discussed in the guidance. Please click here for more details.
