INTERACTIVE TRAINING ON GOOD GOVERNANCE IN BOARDS OF SOCIAL PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
November 30, 2022
The importance of good governance can hardly be overestimated in the boards of social profit organizations (SPO).
We have developed a one-day training with a team of 3 facilitators experienced in governance and social profit organizations. The style of this day is one of experience sharing and interaction.
The result of this day will be a better understanding of the issues and impact of social profit organisations, as well as the role and responsibilities of board members.
