The development of governance skills is a continuing process for anyone in governance.  The Community Trusts Professional Development Programme provides both formal learning opportunities, and the opportunity to learn from fellow trustees from community trusts across Aotearoa.  These four interviews give an insight into participants’ personal insights from the workshop experience. Special thanks to Eastern & Central Community Trust’s Levi Walford (Ngāti Rākaipaaka, Ngāti Kahungunu ki Heretaunga);  Otago Community Trust’s Bridget Tweed; Whanganui Community Foundation’s Mike Paki ( Ngāti Apa); and Foundation North’s Naisi Chen.
