Governance As Leadership Training Institute (GALTI) 2023

GALTI 2023 is Back!

Energising and equipping a Board of Directors to embrace strategic governance and to operate at a generative level for the benefit of our institutions is no easy task. But it can be done… with a little help!

This is what the UNIS Hanoi Board of Directors and their colleagues from more than 50 international schools have discovered, as they embarked together on a ground breaking journey over the last ten years.

The seventh annual GAL Training Institute will be held on 9-10 September, 2023 hosted by seasoned educational leaders Bambi Betts and Dr Chip Barder (one of the training institute’s founders and the former Head of School at UNIS Hanoi). They have led numerous Heads of School and their Board members through a series of training institutes that have transformed effective governance for schools.

We strongly encourage schools to attend in teams including Head of School/ Director/ Superintendent AND Board Members/ Governors/ Trustees.
