The CEO Forum is a series of confidential peer networking meetings open to CEO-level staff in nonprofit organisations.

Proudly supported by:

Ulster Bank

This is a free event and registration is a must. Book your place online here.

Course details: 

These bi-monthly breakfast meetings, which are restricted to CEO-level staff in nonprofit organisations will: 

  1. Provide a confidential and private forum for the leading staff person of community, voluntary, charitable organisations to speak with each other in an honest and open way so as to offer and gain peer support.
  2. Allow participants to explore matters of shared interest through this forum so that we can think better through our own respective challenges. Some topics already identified in the consultation phase include:
    • Governance: relationship between CEO and the board of directors.
    • Funding diversification
    • Leadership challenges for leaders in organisations in this very changeable and fluid environment. If we accept that things cannot remain the same in our organisations, what does that mean for us? For how things get done? For deciding what gets done?
    • How to organise and think through the delivery of public services in a more effective way. What is wanted and what role for voluntary organisations? Can we challenge ourselves to think more radically?
    • Strategy: if our work is long term, in terms of mission, but all the things that keep us busy are the day-to-day things, how do we unlock new thinking in our organisations and the sector?
    • Measuring outcomes in our organisations, and in our sector.

There will be no guest speakers at these events, but instead, one participant will have been asked to come prepared to be a ‘conversation starter’.

They will talk for no longer than 5 minutes about one of the identified themes and this can kick-start a semi-structured conversation in the respective table groups. No slides, no notes, no fuss, just people meeting people doing their same jobs as themselves to network and gain, as well as provide, support.

Conversation starter: Deirdre Seery, CEO of Sexual Health Centre, Cork

Who Should Attend: 

These meetings will be restricted to the most senior manager in community/voluntary organisations and no one else will be in the room.
