Succession Planning Training Course, 10am-1pm on Wednesday 10th June at Grantham Museum

Museum Development East Midlands (MDEM) has added another course to the June training programme.  Hilary McGowan, Resilience and Governance Consultant  will be delivering a half day workshop on Succession Planning on Wednesday 10th June at Grantham Museum from 10am-1pm.  Drinks and biscuits will be provided for delegates.
This is an excellent opportunity for those working and volunteering in independent museums to ensure that their organisations can look forward to a sustainable future.  It will also be invaluable to local authorities considering setting up trusts.  Hilary is a highly respected expert in this area and we are delighted to be able to offer this training opportunity to museums in the East Midlands.
This workshop will cover:

  • Succession Planning: what does it mean?
  • why now is never too early
  • what a Plan should look like
  • how to decide what you need
  • long standing trustees: how not to offend them

What you will take away:

  • a Recruitment Toolkit
  • the beginning of your Plan
  • how to use the Magic Matrix
  • how to have those difficult conversations
  • what to do next

Who is it for?

  • Trustees of independent museums
  • local authorities setting up trusts
  • paid or voluntary managers of independent museums
  • Museum Development Officers and their managers

Places on the course are FREE to people working or volunteering in museums and heritage organisations across the East Midlands.  However, there will be a charge of £25 if delegates who have booked a place do not attend on the day and do not contact us in advance to cancel.
