Q&B Conference 2017 ‘Seek unity; uphold difference; find wholeness: Exploring decision-making through Quaker Business Method and other models’

The annual conference was held at Friends House, always a pleasure to spend time there.

The day was very full – with more workshops I wanted to attend than I could, which is always a good sign.

Priming the Brain

My highlights were a workshop with Claire James from Pivotal Moment on Priming the Brain. Claire talked about the new discoveries in neural science are showing how people can consciously shape their thinking environment, and help them make better decisions.

Charity Governance and the Quaker Business Method

Shivaji Shiva from Anthony Collins Solicitors gave a good overview of Charity Governance and the Quaker Business Method. I’ve done several workshop/seminars exploring and explaining Governance, but it was good to have a specific workshop aimed at Quaker Charity Governance.

Including a quote: ‘Recognition of the fact that good charity governance is difficult to achieve is a useful first step.’ Something to keep in mind, as we struggle to be good trustees and committee members.

Lots of notes to work through – and hopefully a couple of blog posts to come.
