This series will look at how rare disease patient groups can attract and retain the right people to ensure their organisation’s success and longevity.
It kicked off back in May with a session on recruiting and managing volunteers (watch the recording here), in June we will cover how to grow your team by employing staff and we’re excited to round off the series with a session on succession planning.
Succession planning is an important consideration for any organisation, and especially so for rare disease patient groups that are often run by small teams. Thinking about the future of your group early on can help ensure its success and longevity and stop it from becoming too dependent on a single individual.
Join this webinar to hear real examples of rare disease patient groups who have navigated through a leadership transition.
Learn from their experience and come away with ideas on how to implement a succession plan in your own organisation.
If you still aren’t sure if it’s relevant to you, here are some reasons you should start thinking about succession planning:
