  • Listen to / Learn From other leaders.
  • Build Leader to Leader Peer Support across non-profit organisations.

This is being delivered through partnership with Centre for Leadership Performance which is a West Cumbria based non-profit organisation who work to “Develop Cumbria’s Leaders for Today & Tomorrow.
