RESCHEDULED: Learning in GM Event - Collaborative Leadership

We are looking for VCSE and Public Sector leaders to attend our collaborative leadership event.

You might be:

  • A chief executive, manager, senior officer or leaders in the public sector, voluntary, community or social enterprise organisation.
  • Someone who leads beyond your organisation.
  • Interested in leadership cultures and collaborating within and across sectors.

Working collaboratively across sectors is essential. We will present examples of successful cross-sector partnerships followed by group discussions around what is needed when working collaboratively.

At our event you will meet other people with an interest in developing their leadership skills and make connections with people from the VCSE and Public sector. Delegates will have the opportunity to learn about each other's leadership styles, and share stories of how they became the leaders they are.

It will be an interactive workshop where you will:
• Discuss what it means to be a leader and what is important to you about being a leader.
• Listen to presentations from VCSE and Public Sector partnerships who have worked collaboratively to deliver successful outcomes.
• Learn about what is important when working in cross-sector projects
• Find out more about an opportunity to build ongoing stronger links between organisations and build relationships.

We are also looking for volunteers to be ‘living books’ on the day and tell their stories of how they became the leaders they are today in their sector.
