National COO Network

11 November 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The next meeting of the National #TrustLeaders COO network takes place on 11th November

The first half of this session has been designed to help you stop and reflect on your own development, learning, and wellbeing in the COO role; with opportunities to access further support offline.

The session will provide an opportunity to reflect deeply on the COO role, including latest research, the perspectives of others doing the role, and current demands – drawing on a wide range of expert thinking. This will be a powerful professional development session for COOs and valuable reflective time. We’ll also be thinking about two key topics – sustainability and diversity; and welcome trust leaders together with some expert organisations supporting them on these timely issues.
