This year we are delighted to welcome our guest speaker Pauline Lafferty, former Chief People Officer of the Weir Group Plc, an international engineering company with over 14,000 staff.


Pauline will explore the benefits and challenges of establishing diversity within the board of third sector organisations. She will discuss her thoughts and experiences of the impact of diverse thinking in organisations and thus the importance of diversity in recruitment to board appointments. Pauline offers a wealth of experience, not only in HR, but also as a Trustee of various charitable organisations.


Following Pauline, our charity specialist Partner Fiona Haro will give a review of good governance for charities, followed by a   Q & A session and lunch.


The event is being held in the Hilton Queensferry Crossing with stunning views of the bridge and we hope that you can join us to learn more about the value that diversity can bring to an organisation.


This is a free event but spaces are limited and booking is essential. The deadline for booking is Tuesday 13th February. Please feel free to bring a friend or colleague who may find this seminar useful, and let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.   If you have any questions, please call 01383 628800 and ask for Carol or Lynn in Marketing. Alternatively, email charities@thomsoncooper.com. We look forward to seeing you.
