These meetings are an opportunity for ACEVO members to network locally, gain peer support and hear from specialist speakers on the issues that affect us all; leadership, governance, personal effectiveness, leading through change and managing the workforce.

The forums are round table meetings with a limited number of places available to ensure quality group discussion. They are usually hosted by a member or ACEVO Coporate Partner over a sandwich lunch.

If you would like to find out more about the South West forums, or would like to host one of the meetings please contact the Events Team.

Next meeting:

Date and Time: 27 September
Location: Natwest, Temple Quay, Bristol
Speaker: Jenny Berry, Director of Leadership and Governance

Agenda:Building Trust in the Boardroom – the role of the CEO

Developing a culture of trust at boardroom level is a worthwhile investment. When things are going well, having trust among the board, CEO and senior management team results in a less stressful, more productive working environment. When there is a crisis, an organisation with a culture of trust and mutual respect is better able to work as a team to find an effective solution.

At this forum members will discuss practical actions that can contribute to the building of trust in the boardroom, and will specifically address the role of the CEO in increasing trust between the board and senior staff, and practical action planning for improvement.

The discussion will be lead by Jenny Berry, ACEVO’s Director of Leadership & Governance  and will also consider actions to take when things go wrong.

These forum meetings are available to ACEVO members only. If you are not an ACEVO member but are interested in finding out more, please contact the Membership Team.
