2015 Fellow Jenny O’Hara Jakeway is CEO of Credu: Connecting Carers, a charity that supports carers in Wales. She was appointed to this position at the same time as starting her Clore Social Fellowship.
CEOs don’t tend to have a lot of support when they join new places. Luckily for me, being part of the Fellowship meant I had support from day one to do my job, and I was able to immediately use what learned from the programme by bringing it back to the organisation.

Leadership matters. This is the first line taken from our new report Leadership Development in the Third Sector: Learning Lessons.
We all know that leadership in the sector is important, but what really matters is leadership that can navigate through choppy waters while simultaneously capitalising on new opportunities. Sounds relatively straightforward, but it isn’t.

John Williams is Vice Chair at the Association of Chairs.
It’s been a tough 12 months for Chairs and trustees. The charity sector has faced unprecedented challenge and criticism, and much of it has focused on apparent failings in governance and leadership. Chairs especially are under pressure to ensure their boards are responsible and effective, while continuing to deliver the maximum impact for their beneficiaries.

As I have sat amongst the other 2016 Clore Social Leadership Fellows one thing is for sure, I am not like anyone here. When I began my Fellowship journey, this state of affairs concerned me - we are all supposed to be people who want social change and want to learn how we can be more effective in leading these changes amongst the communities we work with and the social sector in general.

Perception versus reality is a poignant theme which many of us have been grappling with since the aftermath of the EU referendum. Do the referendum results illustrate the country’s real wish to leave the EU, or are we in the mire of a bigger, societal disconnection with how the public wants real change in the face of austerity and social inequality?

Martin Crewe is Director, Barnardo’s Scotland.
‘Are you a brilliant public speaker?’
As chief officers of voluntary organisations there is increasing pressure on us all to be ‘great communicators’, so it’s a pretty loaded question.
