Good governance

It's time to re-think the way we do governance. Are your arrangements fit for purpose in the era of safety and new build?

Book on to HQN's masterclass to find out what you should be doing to raise your governance standards.  

Final accountability rests with the Board. The Board must act in the best interests of your residents, your employees, your key stakeholders and investors. That's not an easy task and they can't do it alone. There's a whole support team behind them. Your framework and procedures must help Board members to do their jobs effectively. Getting the relationships right and the most from skills and expertise is vital.

So join HQN Chief Executive Alistair McIntosh, Mick Warner from the Homes and Communities Agency and our leading governance associate Colin Ward, former Director of Business Assurance at Helena Partnerships, for a day of strategic advice and practical guidance.

You'll get to hear from all sides of the table – the company secretary/governance officer, the Executive team, the Board chair and the NEDs. We'll leave no stone unturned.

Sessions include:

  • HCA – what does good governance look like?
  • The HQN experience: what makes a good board? what are the common pitfalls? How best to avoid them
  • The NED’s perspective – how do NEDs get close to an organisation and make the right decisions when it's not our day job?
  • The Chief Executive’s perspective
  • A day in the life of the company secretary/governance officer - dealing with the essentials from board papers to minutes
  • Making meetings more effective
  • Putting it right when it all goes wrong.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Alistair McIntosh, Chief Executive, HQN
  • Mick Warner, Deputy Director of Regulation, Homes and Communities Agency
  • Karen Mayhew, Chief Executive, Havebury Housing Association
  • Jacqui McKinlay, Chief Executive, Centre for Public Scrutiny
