Now in its ninth year, the theme of this year’s conference will be Change – Evolution or Revolution? Change is everywhere – the challenge for today’s leader is not to learn how to accept it but how to orchestrate it and drive positive outcomes. Birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, the suffragettes, and the co-operative movement – and more recently the jet engine, computer and graphene – our region is no stranger to Evolution or Revolution. We now stand on the brink of a new decade, in the midst of political uncertainty and massive technological innovation, and we look to the inspiring women and men of the North West to lead the charge.The conference will bring together inspirational speakers through discussion sessions and TED talk presentations, and will provide unique insight to help leaders from all shapes and sizes of organisation to make changes (of whatever scale) to reshape your organisation and your personal performance as a leader. The event will also provide invaluable opportunities to connect with other leaders from across all sectors, and will conclude with a drinks reception to round up what is set to be a fantastic day.Our host for the day is the wonderful Heather Wright, Director of Advance Performance. Claire Ebrey IoD North West Regional Director, and Mike Blackburn, Chair of IoD North West will also be speaking, followed by Director of the Year Award winners Marnie Millard OBE, CEO of Nichols PLC, and Maura Jackson, CEO of BACKUP North West. Alison Larkin, Professor of Climate Change at University of Manchester will also be presenting, followed by Rachel Clacher, Co-Founder & Director of Moneypenny, Danny Simpson, CEO of MID Communications, Anna Daroy, Interim Director General Institute of Directors, and many more!We are expecting over 200 business leaders on the day so make sure you get your tickets booked early to avoid disappointment.
