Second cohort begins Leading GM Leadership Programme

On 7 and 8 March, the second #LeadingGM Leadership Programme cohort began their leadership journey at their Driving Place Leadership event. Across the two days, this second group of almost 100 GM leaders started a six month programme that will see them connect with each other, with their wider places, and with GM citizens. Throughout this event, we saw another group of enthusiastic leaders explore what it means to be a courageous and innovative leader in Greater Manchester through a range of sessions and activities. A number of inspirational guest speakers from a variety of sectors joined the delegates and explored the GM vision and what it takes to lead:

Day 1
Jon Rouse, Chief Officer, Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership
Carolyn Wilkins, Chief Executive, Oldham MBC
Claire Norman, Associate Director Communications and Engagement, Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership

Day 2
Katy Calvin Thomas, Director of Strategy, The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust
Tony Lloyd, Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner and Interim Mayor
Neil McInroy, Chief Executive, Centre for Local Economic Strategies
Carolyn Wilkins, Chief Executive, Oldham MBC
Claire Galt and John Walker, Tameside South Integrated Neighbourhood services
Vickie Hollingworth and Andy Parkinson, Wigan MBC
Jim Taylor, City Director, Salford CC

On the evening of 7 March, this group took part in a Dinner with a Difference, participating in Street Wisdom sessions led by Julie Drybrough, or in outreach activities with The A Teams (at the Audacious Church, Salford) and Barnabus (at their drop in centre at The Beacon, Manchester). This inspiring evening was another great addition to the Driving Place Leadership event.

We look forward to the rest of this cohort’s leadership programme!
