Open Event  - 5th July 2011

Using collaborative networks to stimulate & support transformation


We are pleased to invite you to the second event of the Civil Society Forum.

The event will take place on Tuesday 5th July 2011 1.30pm –

5.30pm in Central London and afterwards for networking

This workshop will look at effective ways of working with dispersed groups of people / communities of interest to stimulate & support change.


The focus will be on how to use collaborative networks and support groups can stimulate and support genuine transformation of organizations and services.


The workshop will be joint exploration of the challenge drawing on the insights and experience of everyone in the room. This will include:


Catalysing and supporting change

Esther Ridsdale, founder and chair of The Civil Society Forum will give a session sharing insight from 17 years experience supporting cross-organizational transformation, coaching and the last eight years designing and running collaborative networks.


Strategic thinking scenario

To ground the exploration we will consider Suffolk County Council’s conundrum of how form a network to support people across the locality in addressing the challenge of sustaining and reforming services in the face of cuts and reform.


Questions will be shared in advance giving time for participants to gather their thoughts and providing opportunity for short sharing of insight by willing participants with particular experience and expertise in related areas.



Feedback from participants at launch event:




“I felt like I was drinking from a fire hydrant”


“This is the way forward”







The cost of this event is £45 including VAT.

Come on a Time to Thrive Now course to help you to live life to the full. We get one chance at life (that we know of) so let’s make the most of it! Like a plant in the garden, when we are in the right conditions we just burst into life. Unlike plants, we can get up and walk and do a lot to create those conditions for ourselves. Time to Thrive Now is a six week course using elements of life coaching, sports psychology, mindfulness and CBT to help you face the challenges of life in a positive and supportive way.

Esther has spent more than 25 years supporting individuals and teams to take on challenges in organisations, communities and in the mountains. She has trained as a coach (International Coaching Federation accredited coach training programme), completed a certificate in counselling and qualified as a Human Systems Dynamics Practitioner. She has found these experiences useful in her own life journey and draws on them in helping others along their own journeys.
