Culture Now's podcast


Feb 7, 2019

In this episode, Culture Now are joined by special guests Mairead O'Rourke and Katie Smith. Both are independent governance consultants and both have experience working in museums and as trustees.

They bring their varied perspectives to the podcast to explore what actually is governance, why should we care about it and how does it effect the museum sector?

This is an important topic which effects all museum staff and volunteers and most importantly the experience we deliver for our audiences. So have a listen and let us know your thoughts!  You can contact our guests on twitter @MaireadO and @KatieSmith138
