The Ivy House Sessions
Creating real change – the kind of change that effects individuals, businesses, education and society – doesn’t happen by chance.
We’re bringing together thought leaders, curious minds and critical thinkers in a virtual space to discuss the hot topics that can change how we develop each new generation of leaders – leaders we need now and in the future.
If you’re already a changemaker – or are interested to explore what it means to be one – register for one of our events below.
How to retain your best talent
Holding on to the best talent is essential for future success, but do you really know what they want
and, if you do, are you providing it?
14th July | 10:00 – 11:00
An uncertain future requires a radical new approach to developing and retaining talent. And, to do that, you need understand what your talent want, the reality of what they experience in your organisation, and what matters to them. In this essential talk we’ll be sharing the feedback from our latest research, ‘What talent really want’, giving you the 5 critical factors that underpin an effective talent development strategy enabling you to hold onto your best people.
If you’re passionate about attracting, developing and retaining the brightest emerging talent, and turning them into your leaders of tomorrow, this event is for you.
Human leadership: How do you get from where you are now to where you want to be?
We’re recording a special edition of The Ivy House Sessions to take a deep dive into human leadership – something you’ll want to know all about if you want happier, resilient, engaged people – which equals a stronger business.
Available from September 2021
What does human leadership mean to you? Does it describe your leadership culture? If not, then this talk is for you. Every single piece of research is telling us that a more human, connected leadership style that embraces difference is what our organisations need to thrive in now, and in the future.
Getting there is, however, another question. In this session, Elke Edwards will a share pragmatic and effective model for human leadership and a clear path of how to get there. Essential listening for any L&D, HR or Talent Leader that is committed to developing leaders who are future fit.
Register your interest now and we’ll share the talk with you as soon as it’s ready – so you can watch it in your own time, and refer back to it again and again.
13th October | 16:30 – 17:30
There is so much talk about the need for a focus on character education but what does this really mean and, how do we do it effectively?
Enabling students to thrive requires far more than a framework – it needs skills, tools, time and action. In this dynamic panel discussion, we look at the what and how of character education – focusing on how to overcome the challenges and deliver meaningful character development that sets students up for success.
This event brings together experts from the world of character education and some students who are at the receiving end of what we do. If you want to do more than tick some boxes this event will give you insight, support and advice on how make a real shift in character education.
