“The thing that really inspires me about the ella leadership group is the opportunity to be able to come together with other Chief Execs and MDs from the not for profit sector, to be able to share issues in a safe environment, and to be able to hear from some of the best brains.”Sue PortoCEO
“ella forums provide a really safe and supportive space for people to share issues. Colleagues in the sector are often facing the same challenges and they really 'get it' when you want to talk something through - I don't know of anywhere else where you would have so much knowledge and experience to draw on in one virtual space. We all take something away from the meetings.”Stuart ShoreChief Executive Officer
“It’s like a family coming together. We have common causes. We are all different, but we have common links because we are trying to do something better for our cause.”Orin LewisChief Exec.
“My entire organisation has completely changed with the help that I have had from ella Members.”John CarrollCEO
