Great Resource

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.

New Governor

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.
