• Board Builders Forum 2017

Board Builders Forum 2017. Monday, 30 October – Auckland

About this forum

After the success of the two forums held at the beginning of the year, due to popular demand we are once again holding this one-day forum in Auckland.

If you are a Board Member, Trustee, Committee member, or if you manage, work with, or want to get onto a Not-For-Profit Board, then this forum is for you.

It is no surprise that great organisations usually have a dynamic forward thinking Board with a passion for the organisations vision. Board work can mean hard graft under difficult conditions, and it can also mean immense satisfaction and reward when the pay-off comes. But getting to that point requires renewal along the way and you cannot continue the journey if the tank is empty.

The Not-For-Profit groups that will remain sustainable and prosper in this environment will be the ones whose governance is efficient, accountable, transparent, responsive, and whose values are clear and bold. At the Forum, high-impact and practical sessions will be delivered by experienced practitioners who not only understand the technical details, but appreciate the people dynamic – and what it takes to build a team powerhouse.

You will get:

  • Practical tips that you can use at your next Board meeting
  • An appreciation of the techniques and tools in measuring board performance
  • Gain insight to the relevant HR legalities
  • Connections to like-minded board members and senior managers
  • Opportunities to explore the board related challenges you face
  • Inspiration and ideas to put fuel in your tank

Who should attend?

This Forum is designed for Trustees, Board Members, CEOs, Senior Managers and Aspiring leaders.


Be inspired by the following presenters:

Should you be unable to attend, a substitute delegate is welcome to attend at no extra cost.

If a substitute delegate is not available and you need to cancel your registration, please be aware of the following:
• Up to 7 days prior to the event you will be provided a refund of your registration cost, less a $50.00 plus GST service charge.

• If you cancel within 7 days of the event, you are not eligible to receive a refund.
