Learning GM VCSE Event (VCSE participants)

 Registration is closed for this event


Are you interested in sharing how you lead with people from the public sector?

  • Are you a chief executive or senior officer in a voluntary, community or social enterprise organisation?
  • Do you lead beyond your organisation?
  • And are you interested in leadership cultures and collaborating within and across sectors?

We invite you to come to this event and share with public sector leaders the story of how you became a leader, what is important about being a leader and how to work collaboratively.

Thank you to all who came to our first event in July where you gave us your ideas about how to design this event. Since then, a small working group has worked with the ideas to create the format of this event.

We need a team of 30 VCSE leaders to meet two cohorts of public sector leaders so that delegates to have the opportunity to learn about each other’s leadership style and share stories of how you became the leader you are. We are inviting leaders from the public sector, including participants in the Leading GM Programme, to spend half a day with leaders from the VCSE sector.

Working collaboratively across sectors is essential. We will have examples of where VCSE organisations have led successful cross-sector partnerships followed by group discussions around collaborative working.

At the event you will meet other people with an interest in developing their leadership skills and make connections with people from the public sector.

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

Interchange will present more information on an opportunity to share how you lead with people from the public sector in your organisations – a way of creating stronger relationships and more understanding of leadership within the VCSE sector.
