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.
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 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
This isn’t another event running through a checklist of logistical things schools need to do in response to the Everyone’s Invited movement.
In this disruptive debate, we’ll be going beyond the rhetoric to challenge the very foundation of how we embed new behavioural norms, gain a deeper understanding of taking ownership and accountability for our actions and critically, how to change. Join our speakers:
- Rachael Johnson, CEO of PiXL
- Jonnie Noakes, Director or Teaching & Learning at Eton
- Gareth Doodes, Headmaster and CEO at King’s School, Worcester
- Elke Edwards, Ivy House Founder
If you’re a headteacher or senior leader in education who is genuinely interested in creating actual behavioural and cultural change in schools, this event is for you.
1st December | 12:30 – 13:30
The need for learning – real, human, relational learning has never been so great.
As remote, and hybrid ways of working become the norm it is clear that talent throughout organisations need to be given the human skills that will make a game-changing difference to how they perform and feel about life. How then do we do it? How do we create the kind of community, psychological safety and behavioural shifts that are the measure for successful learning?
On 1st December the design team at Ivy House will share with you everything we’ve learnt about doing just that. Sharing with you the essential things you need to think about as you go forward.
This is an event for HR, L&D and Talent leads who are serious about offering truly valuable development opportunities – and what to deepen their understanding of how to do just that.
Want to be kept up-to-date with our events? Register here and we’ll let you know further details as soon as they are released.
