High-profile guest speakers announced for HEY100 event in Hull
Jamie Peacock MBE, Head of Rugby at Hull Kingston Rovers; Helen Bissett, MD at Yorkshire-based communications agency H&H; David Sanderson MBE, Chief Executive Officer, The Rank Foundation; and JJ Tatten, Manager at the Warren Youth Project in Hull, will be guest speakers at our HEY100 Leadership Programme launch event on Friday 26 January 2018 in Hull.
The free event is open to people working in the Voluntary, Cultural and Social Enterprise sectors in Hull & East Yorkshire (HEY), with recruitment for the HEY100 Leadership Programme opening on the same day. Guests can attend a panel discussion with the four high-profile leaders when they will debate leadership issues and opportunities particular to the region.
Jamie Peacock MBE, Head of Rugby at Hull Kingston Rovers said, ‘Great leadership is about inspiring the people around you to grow and develop so that together you can achieve your shared goals and be successful. I urge anyone who wants to build their leadership skills to join us for this event. The HEY100 Leadership Programme is a fantastic opportunity that the entire region will benefit from.’
The HEY100 Leadership Programme, a free leadership and management development series, is open to managers, community leaders, trustees and CEOs in Hull and East Yorkshire. It aims to cultivate leadership excellence to further strengthen the region’s voluntary, social and cultural sectors.
Helen Bissett, Managing Director at H&H, a leading UK communications agency based in Yorkshire added, ‘In my experience it is the quality of leadership that makes the difference. Everyone is capable of individually achieving great things, but it’s leadership that gels the potential together into something extraordinary. If you passionately care about your organisation’s success, this is an event not to be missed.’
Dawn Austwick, Chief Executive of the Big Lottery Fund, will deliver a keynote speech about generous leadership, and there will be question and answer sessions when event attendees can find out more about the HEY100 leadership series, and sign up for training and leadership opportunities.
