CEO Forum 2017: Partnerships that work

CEO Forum 2017

Do you dream of cooperating with others to accomplish more than you could on your own? Can strategic partnerships increase your organisation's impact? How can you guide your team through effective alliances with wisdom and maturity?

The partnerships you face today offer exciting potential but they're likely to be varied in scale and scope. So we've designed the 2017 Forum to offer you insights into principles and practices from a range of initiatives and models to help you succeed in this complex strategic area. Partnership working is integral to most CEO roles and we'll explore principles that can apply generally as well as to establishing partnerships with others.

Learning - with Fran Beckett
We're delighted that Fran Beckett will be leading us through our 24-hours together. Fran is known to be a wise, engaging and incisive mentor and consultant in leadership, governance and strategy development at CEO and Board level. Over the years, she's held a number of Chief Executive positions - Transform Southwark, Church Urban Fund, and Livability (formerly the Shaftesbury Society) - and non-exec Board responsibilities, as well gaining a vast range of insights through her work with organisations, large and small.

Growing - in leadership and spiritual maturity
Of course, you could glean good partnership principles from a book. What the Forum offers you, however, is a unique look at partnership through the lens of Christian leadership and spiritual maturity. Partnership working offers opportunities to grow in discernment and character as well as in leadership skills - with the prayerful support of peers.

Networking - a vital ingredient
Chances for you to connect and talk have always been a primary reason to attend the Forum.
'I love the CEO Forum - through it I've made many friends and so appreciate their encouragement, wisdom and support in what can sometimes be a lonely role.'
Henrietta Blyth, CEO at InterHealth Worldwide
