Models for Systems Change
Thursday 10th September 2020, 8:30-10:30am
Individual interventions are rarely sufficiently scaleable to solve population-level problems.
Many of us have visions that describe societal changes and outcomes, including phrases like: “a world in which…”, “a society where…”, “all people with X are able to…” And yet, most of us spend most of our time and energy working with limited numbers of individuals and communities, to help them make their way within the broader systems that continue to work against them.
There are, however, a number of emerging models that can inform and shape far more aspirational strategies for deeper and more comprehensive systems change. These models can enable us to create far more impact beyond our own footprint by engaging, mobilising and building on the strengths of a much broader field of “system actors”.
To share models, experiences, insights and practical approaches around this increasingly important topic, I am hosting a complimentary online breakfast seminar, exclusively for charity CEOs, on Thursday the 10th September 2020 on Models for Systems Change. This session will provide a unique opportunity for facilitated, in-depth, open and honest discussion with a high-level group of peers, supported with straight-forward frameworks and live examples.
My guest speakers will be Mike Adamson, CEO of British Red Cross, and Chris Wright, CEO of Catch 22, who along with other guests, will share insights from their respective thinking and emerging approaches. The seminar will begin at 8:30am on Zoom and will finish at 10:30am.
You will walk away with a clear understanding of:
- The implicit limitations and consequent place of programmes and interventions
- The population-level opportunity (and necessity) for a complex-system approach
- The broader suite of roles and missions within collaborations for system change
- How the frameworks translate (or not) to real life activity and strategy
- The shifts required to reorientate your organisation towards a collaborative systems-change model
To ensure a peer-group environment, this seminar is exclusively for CEOs of large registered charities and is free to attend. Numbers are strictly limited and seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to enquire about a place, please contact me by email as early as possible.
