Agenda Item 35 - Conferences: Confessions of a (Non) Attendee | #TheGovernorsPodcast
Show Notes

For today's Single Item Agenda (episode) we discuss;

  • Attending conferences and events in the Education sector - When and where do they take place? Who organises/hosts/delivers them? What can governors, trustees, clerks and governance professionals, senior leaders and others gain from these?
  • How governance conferences differ from governor training
  • Boost your Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and make the most of any opportunity to improve your practices
  • Your presence whilst in attendance - Toggling between being a public speaker and being a delegate (present to listen and learn)
  • The value of networking and making connections but understanding your capacity and balance

Thank you for tuning into our show. We appreciate you, our listeners.
