CO3 Leadership Conference 2017

The CO3 Leadership Conference & Awards 2017

Leading Change - Adding Value

Thursday 23 & Friday 24 February 2017

I am delighted to announce the theme of CO3’s Leadership Conference and Awards 2017 as Leading Change – Adding Value.  I am grateful for the continued support from Ecclesiastical Insurance as the main sponsor.

Mahatma Gandhi was quoted as saying ‘Be the change you want to see in the world.’ I am privileged to be surrounded by members who frame their life around the goal of making a real difference, adding value by creating positive change.  Your leadership is what drives the CO3 Board and staff team to keep progressing forward. Therefore, this year’s theme is a tribute to the strengths that have made our sector such a driving force. Change is in our DNA, both responding to external changes and leading social change to enhance lives on a daily basis.

What I have learnt on my leadership journey so far with CO3, is that without creating the space for conversation about the leaders we are, and the society we want, it will be confined to papers and reports.  The CO3 Leadership Conference and Awards create that much-needed space.  Space to be inspired, connected, challenged and motivated to continue to lead forward.

The two-day Conference and the Awards dinner will provide an opportunity for leaders across the public, private and Third Sector to connect.  It provides a platform to share thought-provoking ideas, to be motivated through a range of workshops and panel discussions and of course to be inspired by a range of provocative speakers.  We are promising an energy filled two days.

Building on the success of the 2016 CO3 Leadership Awards, we have raised the stakes again!  This year we have nine leadership categories.  In addition to the accolade of receiving a CO3 Leadership Award, we are offering the nine Award winners with an opportunity to participate in an all expenses paid, three-day leadership exchange in Sweden.  The trip is designed to provide the Award winners with a chance to listen, learn and share experiences with their Swedish peers!

I am grateful to all of our Sponsors, with a special thanks dedicated to Ecclesiastical Insurance for their continued support as the main sponsor of the CO3 Leadership Conference and Awards 2017 – Leading Change, Adding Value.

Yours sincerely

Nora Smith
