Action Learning Groups

The Action Learning 2022 programme for chairs or future chairs is now open for applications

Action Learning Groups are now a key part of our programme of support for good governance, alongside our Better Boards trustee training programme. Better Boards Action learning is an opportunity for Hertfordshire CEO's and Chairs to join one of our tailored online groups, run by qualified Better Boards Action Learning facilitators, Sue Pearlman and Adrienne Arthurs.

We now have spaces on one of our FULLY FUNDED Action Learning sets for 2022

Join to meet a network of other chairs across Hertfordshire to discuss ideas and challenges you might face in your specific role, and work together to discuss solutions. It is a great opportunity to network with others working in a similar role and improve your knowledge of the sector in a friendly, safe and positive environment.

We have 6x places on our Action Learning Group, which will meet on the following dates ONLINE:

  • Thu 09 June 09.30am - 11.30am
