Meet our 2020 Experienced Leader participants

We are excited to announce the names of 34 participants on the 2020 Experienced Leader Programme, a year-long leadership development journey designed to build generous and collaborative networks across the social sector and equip social leaders with the leadership capabilities necessary to take on today’s leadership challenges.

The 2020 cohort consists of leaders working across a variety of social sector organisations, including The Equality Trust, The Girls Network, Walking with the Wounded, Blue Cabin, World Habitat, Stoll, and more. Thanks to the generous continued support from the Forces in Mind Trust, we were able to offer fully-funded places for experienced leaders working in the Armed Forces and Service Charities sector.

Commenting on the 2020 Experienced Leader Programme, Ray Lock CBE, Chief Executive of Forces in Mind Trust, said:

“We are delighted to continue to support Clore Social Leadership’s Experienced Leader Programme. We have seen how the programme has continued to deliver excellent results which have benefited the Fellows, their respective organisations and most importantly, the people with whom they work, namely the Armed Forces Community. This is a unique funding model that enables the sub-sector to mutually support individual organisations to become collectively stronger. It’s another example of the collaboration between the Armed Forces charities which is at the forefront of civil society. By investing in the leaders of today, we are increasing the capability of the military and social sectors to make lasting change.”

By investing in the leaders of today, we are increasing the capability of the military and social sectors to make lasting change.

The programme offers access to individual coaching, residentials, peer-to-peer learning, online courses, and more, all designed to fit around existing time commitments. Participants will be supported, challenged and inspired by a group of like-minded social sector leaders and learn through real-world challenges, while using a variety of techniques - all designed to equip them with the tools necessary to grow and take on 21st century social challenges.

Clore Social Leadership’s Programme Director, Jamie Audsley said:

“We’re thrilled to welcome a new cohort of participants and support them on their leadership development journey. We look forward to a challenging, inspiring, and rewarding year ahead which will seek to build new relationships, strengthen existing leadership skills and discover new ones, and amplify the positive impact of social leadership on our sector."

We look forward to a challenging, inspiring, and rewarding year ahead.
