Event Details


Annual Conference

2016

  

The 2016 ACOSVO Annual Conference, “Are we human? Or are we leader?” will take place on Tuesday 1 November in P&G's Church, Edinburgh. The Chair for the day will be ACOSVO member, Edel Harris, CEO, Cornerstone.

 

We will have the chance to explore how to bring authenticity and vulnerability to the leadership role and to consider what makes for 'excellent third sector leadership in Scotland?'

 

Is there sometimes the expectation that we have to be superhuman, or unfeeling robots to fulfil our roles? If so, how do we step up to the mark and meet those expectations, but find a way to take our whole selves to the task? To not be afraid to learn from failure and to have the resilience to get up again and again and keep trying to improve.

 

This event will give us the opportunity to look around and take stock of ourselves, our organisations, our local communities, and wider society. To consider how we should configure ourselves as 21st century leaders to best fit an environment of ambiguity, uncertainty and complexity but not lose sight of opportunity, innovation and creativity.

 

This conference will showcase examples of good practice to ensure your organisation is always in a position to maximise its potential and performance.
