  • Multiple bookings: As demand for our training events is so high, we limit each charity to 3 places over the day, and people from the same charity may not attend the same course as each other except for the half day Governance workshops for CEOs and Trustees.  Don’t worry, we’ll provide you with a workbook and electronic copies of the materials so you can share the learning with your colleagues!
