National Conference

The ella annual conference took place on 12th August 2020, the theme was Changing Times: how does your charity adapt to the new reality.  The speakers were:

Paul Anderson-Walsh: Two Pandemics a Paradigm shift and a Panacea.  This presentation challenged, provoked and enlightened our thinking and beliefs.

Emma Rees: Qualities of Leadership through change.  What it takes to think strategically and navigate the unknown effectively.

Andrew Pepper: Collaboration by design.  Collaboration doesn’t happen by accident.  Collaboration isn’t just desirable, its essential.  Andrew has worked through a range of high-value collaboration projects which all have common characteristics.  He identified some opportunities for collaboration; reflected on our perceptions of what collaboration is-and-isn’t; and provided practical insight to get started on what can be a daunting challenge.

Transformation Challenges: Led by Julie Pelych chair of the ella Southern Forum, this session included a Q&A with 3 ella members and covered practical case studies outlining their plans for change in response to the virus.
