Chief executives and senior managers at charities and social enterprise are to benefit from a new forum group in Bristol and the South West of England. The South West Development Director’s Forum, led by Nancy Chambers, is launching an ella forums group in Bristol in September 2016.
The group, facilitated by Jenny Perez, a former charity CEO, will provide an opportunity for senior managers from charities and social enterprise to come together monthly, hear topical speakers, discuss common challenges and receive one to one coaching.
Ella forums was launched in London by Brian Chernett and Mike Burnage, who spent 18 years founding and developing the Academy for Chief Executives, which uses similar techniques to support corporate leaders. Both recognised the need for better support for third sector leaders. Ella is a social enterprise.
Nancy Chambers of the South West Development Director’s Forum explained:
“Our members in the South West told us that there was a lack of affordable, accessible, sector-specific leadership development and so we’ve tailor made a leadership development programme with ella-forums to address this need.”
“I’ve seen the success of ella forums with CEO’s in Bristol and the surrounding area and thought this is something we need to deliver locally to senior managers also.”
