This webinar focused on the specific skills and behaviours required to chair a virtual Governing Board meeting. We explored the impact of meeting in a virtual environment on preparation, participation and engagement, and ensuring clarity of understanding for all participants. We also reflected on how current Department for Education guidance on governance during the Coronavirus school closures, should inform the process of agenda setting.
The webinar was facilitated by our two governance experts, Steve Barer and Linda Waghorn, both experienced chairs. There will be a mix of input from Steve and Linda together with real-time polls and the opportunity to share best practice.
