DSC Zoom Talk - The do’s and dont's of a successful board: executive communication during the crisis

Date: 
Monday, 24 August 2020 -
5:00pm to 6:00pm
Venue: 
Zoom

Covid 19 has pushed many charities to the brink of an existential crisis and made efficient board communication more important than ever. With high consequence decisions to be made at pace, trustees naturally need to be more involved in the organisation; many boards hold more frequent meetings and ad hoc crisis working groups have been formed. But how much involvement is too much? How can organisations shape the board-executive crisis communication in a way that gives trustees all the information they need but doesn’t turn into an unnecessary additional burden on an already stretched executive? And when is it time to go back to a pre-crisis communication model?

In this Zoom Talk, targeted at both charity trustees and charity leaders in communication with the board, we’ll discuss:

  • What do trustees need from the charity leadership to adequately monitor the situation and make informed decisions?
  • What do charity leaders need from the board in order to lead their organisations through the crisis?
  • What are the practical issues of board communication in a virtual world?
  • How can organisations transition smoothly to a post-crisis board-leadership communication model.

Format: Panel discussion followed by Q&A with the attendees.

This Zoom Talk is free to attend.
