About the Event

‘Collaborative Leadership’ is the central theme of this year’s event and will be different to the previous Active Partnerships Conventions, specifically in its format. The event has been designed and will be run in partnership with Collaborate CIC, a not-for-profit consultancy and research organisation, working with cross-sector partners across the UK to develop the relationships, culture, leadership and infrastructure needed to enable collaborative social change. Taking learning from events such as The Power of Place, the event will be highly participatory for individuals, and will be an opportunity to:
  • Develop your understanding of collaborative leadership through keynote speeches which explore practical examples of collaborative leadership and people’s personal journeys.
  • Learn with and from peers about collaborative leadership journeys, as individuals and Active Partnerships.
  • Bring your learning and insights together as a Active Partnership to develop a collaborative leadership vision for the next 12 months.
  • Learn about and practice techniques such as reflective practice and appreciative inquiry.
  • Hear Sport England Chief Executive Tim Hollingsworth’s personal reflections on collaborative leadership.

The Leadership Convention is our flagship training and networking event, forming an important element of the Raising the Bar Improvement work, and key features of the event include:

  • A focused and highly interactive style, enabling participants to learn from each other and explore new concepts in a safe environment
  • Event programme designed and delivered in partnership with Collaborate CIC, experts in Collaborative Leadership
  • Event App for delegate interaction throughout the 2 days
  • Keynotes and Q & A sessions from experienced practitioners in collaborative leadership / placed based working from other sectors
