WorkingFree Threshold Webinar – Charity Trustees by D’Arcy Myers

Book Your Place - FREE EVENT

Charities depend on great Trustees.  Always important; now getting critical. Might this be for you?

Join this Threshold Webinar to find out how to become a great Charity Trustee. Virtually all Charities are having to adapt to today’s unprecedented challenges, threats, needs – and opportunities.  Huge demands on their services.  Dramatic reductions in funds coming in.  Stark need for precision and close attention to their management.  But – paradoxically – more talented senior people are attracted to and available for this work. This might be you.

This WorkingFree Threshold Webinar will give you an insight into the Charity Sector and how as a Trustee you can make a real difference.

About Working Free

Working Free Ltd- www.WorkingFree.co.uk –  is a specialist career advisory business supporting senior Director-level executives coming off the permanent payroll into an independent working lifestyle. Working Free coaches them from dependency into independency – for their own future; for the enlightened reputation of their sponsoring organisations and – increasingly – for the benefit of the community. Reflecting the level at which we operate, these senior executives will be in their 50s but with many in their 40s.

Working Free has a broad range of modular Workshops all aimed at senior people looking to now operate on an independent basis.  We divide our services between Corporates through our Pathfinder Programme and Individuals through the same material but with more bespoke admin arrangements. Webinar delivery is becoming more popular now and we are all geared up for that.  All our Programmes are designed to fit in with the Working Free website.  Our preference is to deliver everything face to face – seeing the personal interactions as part of the leaning and networking process – but we are happy to configure to suit, particularly through our Threshold Webinar and Workshops Programme
