Stephen Moss – Working with the LankellyChase Foundation (working as an Associate of Action Learning Associates)
Stephen’s work involved working with project leaders to tackle severe and multiple disadvantage through funding system-changing projects. Stephen will explore difficulties around systems leadership and the challenges of influencing wider commissioning systems and then invite workshop participants to explore these themes in their own practice.

Adrian Nixon – Unexpected outcomes from working with the Chief Executives of several different charities
Adrian will present a case study that began as a series of action learning sets for Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of third sector organisations in West Yorkshire, UK. The action learning sets were highly successful, however the CEOs realised that some of the issues they were dealing with were bigger than any one organisation. A new multi-organisation approach was created that extended action learning principles to help organisations cooperate and address societal issues together. The work was so well received it became a case study for a Cabinet Office report for the UK Government. The workshop will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the model, draw conclusions, and compare these with what actually happened.
