United Way’s Learning Centre is pleased to partner again with David Hartley ( for three dynamite development opportunities!

David is a dynamic and energizing trainer – one of best in the country.  He will hold your attention for the duration of each session with his entertaining style, depth of subject matter knowledge and experienced understanding of our sector. You don’t want to miss these opportunities to be inspired and to gain practical knowledge / tools.

Workshop Overview

This workshop is designed for board members, lead staff and others who support the board. Participants of Creating and Maintaining a Truly Engaged & Impactful Non-Profit/Charity Board will leave the session with:

  • 2 Roles & 7 Goals for every governance board
  • How to hold engaging, truly impactful Board meetings & really have an engaged Board
  • Great agendas (including one keystroke that can energize your meetings; and how to start & end every meeting)
  • Long-term direction: strategic planning (Board’s role & easy-to-use template)
  • Long-term protection: fiduciary duties (Board’s role & easy-to-use risk map template)
  • Practically keeping operations and governance separate
  • Building & maintaining trust & unity ... with great debate!
  • Managing Stars, Steadies, Strugglers on the Board. Plus: dealing with toxic behaviour should it occur (helpful “boardroom rules”)
  • Helpful simple (Canadian) ways for the Board to help an organization financially
  • Separating “major” from “minor” issues.
  • Strong “committees” (long-term vs. Task forces)
  • Ensuring you “hire” the right people to your Board
  • Proper Orientation & Evaluation
  • Recruiting new Board members effectively


"I have served on 2 national boards (the Canadian Red Cross Society and the Girl Guides of Canada) along with other foundations and local boards. I’ve attended numerous governance training sessions over the past 20 years, including 3 full days training with John Carver (the Carver Model). Still I got so much more out of David Hartley’s session today. Simply superb!” Kathleen (Kay) Thomson, President of the Good Neighbours Active Living Centre, Winnipeg 

“It was outstanding…and it really opened my eyes to opportunities to further enhance our processes. I absolutely recommend David’s seminars to enhance an organization’s governance processes.”
Ian Barnes, Director of Finance and Operations, Jewish Foundation of Manitoba
