I am a new Governor, and as such, am not entirely comfortable in my role just yet.
After attending my first full Governor board meeting this week, I can feel that this will be a really great resource for me to tap into, if I should ever feel out of my depth. Thank you ladies.
I am a brand new governor and this is a great listen, its great hearing your real life experiences, I really took on board your 'lean in' attitude on my latest meeting it helped me stick my virtual hand up and ask questions and hopefully add value. I am youngish and appreciate you taking the time to record a resource for me to listen to and it feels like modernising governance and is great for sharing experience.
Really enjoyed listening to this and could relate to lots of points as a previous governor and current clerk. Thank you
