National #TrustLeaders Symposium 2023
#TrustLeaders as change agents
Shaping solutions together as we lead through challenging times
15th June 2023 - 9.30am - 3.15pm
Following last year’s hugely successful and extremely well-attended event with Sir Michael Barber, this year’s event will be led by James Plunkett, author of End State: 9 ways society is broken and how we can fix it, and a former adviser to Gordon Brown. James is also an Executive Director of Citizens Advice and is working at the heart of many of the major challenges currently facing society. The day will once again be supported by Sir Steve Lancashire and facilitated by Maggie Farrar
These are defining times for trusts, schools, communities and pupils and James is extremely well placed to help us to think strategically about the implications for our leadership and how we collaborate with others at this time. As you seek to navigate and overcome what seem to be huge and ingrained challenges we want to acknowledge this landscape, but more importantly, help you to share and generate strategic ideas and solutions to help move your organisations even further forward with positivity and purpose in this challenging climate.
Whilst none of us can change the context all by ourselves, we recognise that as trust leaders, you have significant leadership freedoms, scale, and cross-community influence to make some ‘big moves’ that have real impact on communities and pupils’ lives. This event is about discovering these, and as with last year, we will no doubt see some radical and innovative ideas generated in the room, and realised beyond it, through the connections that exist across the networks.
This is one of the year’s most unique, thought-provoking and strategically important professional development opportunities for trust leaders, and we look forward to bringing James’ expertise and perspectives together with the wisdom and experience of the #TrustLeaders networks.
