Governance As Leadership Training Institute (GALTI) 2024

GALTI 2024 

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 20 international schools have discovered, as they embarked together on a ground breaking journey nearly ten years ago.

The 8th annual GALTI Conference with the theme “Charting Tomorrow - Board Governance, Big Questions and the Future of Education” will be held on 7-8 September, 2024. Led by Homa Tavangar from the BIG Questions Institute, Homa has extensive experience in working with schools and their Boards around the world connecting “timely topics of the moment with the timeless desire to work with purpose and make a difference – whatever one’s circumstances”, through strategic planning, good governance and leadership.

This is a new approach to the institute aimed at supporting new learning opportunities for both returning and new participants. With the aim of delegates leaving the event with a strong network of board members to provide on-going support for one another throughout the year.

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

GALTI Programme Overview

The programme is built directly in response to feedback from more than 350 delegates who have attended the past years' events.

It will include:

  • Future of Education - What does it look like and are you prepared? 

  • Big Questions - What should the Board be asking and thinking about to remain relevant in an ever-changing landscape

  • Opportunity and Risks - How to explore scenarios and find the right balance for your school

  • Building a Culture of Governance - Building Governance Skills to Support Highly Effective Board Work

  • Utilising fiduciary, strategic and generative thinking effectively

Cost of Attendance

  • 2-Day, 7-8 September, 2024 Training Institute fee is $800 USD for each delegate.
  • Join a pre-institute session for Board Chairs and Heads of School on Friday September 6 for an additional $50 USD

Please note, GALTI is designed for ‘school teams’ including both Board members and the Head of School, and not for individual attendance except in exceptional circumstances. Other selected senior administrators are also welcome to participate.
