When: Thursday 25 February 2021 09:30am-12:30pm
Where: Zoom

Book your place on our first virtual Charity Leaders Group meeting of 2021. Focusing on leadership and diversity, speakers Ros Stephens, Coach, Trainer and HR Consultant and Katie Allen, Consultant and Business and Leadership Coach and Jayne Rowe, PEM Partner and Head of Charities and NFP organisations will explore leadership during a pandemic and how they can become more diverse and inclusive in 2021.

About Ros Stephens

Ros writes and delivers training for leaders and managers at all levels, and is known for her engaging style and ability to quickly incorporate the participants’ experiences into her training content to help it come alive. Her trainings are impactful and practical, leaving participants with tips and techniques they can immediately apply as well as insightful ‘nuggets’ to inspire the mind.

Ros is an executive coach with a reputation for getting to the nub of the issue and helping clients to unlock their potential by understanding what has been holding them back. She typically works with clients who are at key transition points in their careers, for example stepping up into a new role, seeking promotion, changing careers, starting a new business.

Ros is also a seasoned HR professional with many years under her belt in Organisational Development. She works on a project or contract basis in areas such as leadership development, culture, values and employee engagement. She has a reputation for expertly bringing stakeholders along and ensuring initiatives are embedded and sustainable.

The role of leaders has never been more vital as the pandemic is testing company cultures to their limits. Companies need engaged, productive, cohesive teams, and yet many employees have never felt more isolated, fragmented or siloed. Leaders play a key role in nurturing cohesivity, collaboration and creativity at this difficult time.

Ros will host a short workshop that will give a flavour of the work she does with leadership teams to be compassionate leaders, to help re-coalesce their teams and to remain connected with their most valuable resource – their people.

About Katie Allen

Katie Allen is a consultant and business and leadership coach who values curiosity, trust and great conversations.  With a career as an experienced business leader and HR professional, Katie’s aim is to put the “human” back into human resources, building inclusive working environments and promoting people development.

Considered a people and culture expert, Katie combines practical examples with her down-to-earth and relaxed approach, working with organisations and individuals to cut through the jargon of HR, delivering a fresh perspective and a positive impact.

Katie will provide participants with a basic overview of how diversity and inclusion must work together for impact, and some simple ideas and advice to improve culture and conversations to deliver an authentic approach to diversity and inclusion.
