The Bolder Board Training with Dan Pallotta

November 12th, 2019
Dublin, Ireland

Why would we bring the Bolder Board Training back to Dublin for a second year in a row?

Because bold deserves more than one helping. We need a regular diet of it. It has to become a practice, or it withers. So we’re bringing the Training back so that you can reinvigorate your own spirit, and so that you can introduce the Training to a much wider circle of your staff and board members, and create powerful alignment, with a critical mass of your people for a new future.

What’s different about this year’s Bolder Board Training?

You’ve had a year to apply what you learned in the training. Is it still alive in you? Come and explore with us how we can keep a spirit of bold alive in Ireland’s nonprofit sector. Without it, we cannot change much. With it, there’s not much we can’t.

What’s new about this year’s Bolder Board Training?

Longer interactive sessions. Irish case studies. And the experience of hundreds of people - a year later - for all of us to learn from. Including you. It’s not any ordinary workshop. And it’s not just about a day. It’s about becoming part of a community of Ireland’s boldest thinkers for social change.
— Dan Pallotta

What does the Bolder Board programme include?

  • New thinking about charity, non-profit business practice, giving and making a difference, and the five conventions that obstruct organisations from reaching their potential

  • New ways of looking at innovation, including the four keys to successful innovation

  • How to create a future that is not based on the past

  • How to increase the energy and enthusiasm of a team and board, and how to transform – and keep transformed

I wasn’t sure what to expect even the title alone “Bolder” training was daunting. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, it was challenging but I came away with a new perspective on what can be achieved and how to change our boards way of operating and thinking. I can not recommend this course highly enough. When are you coming back Dan? Sign me up.
