What our members say about Social Club
Social Club is a unique opportunity to network with and learn from social sector leaders in a relaxed, stimulating setting.
Gives me much valued thinking space with like minded and inspirational colleagues and speakers
The Speakers are all really good. What I like compared to other business clubs is the range of people that come in and the whole intimacy of the gatherings. There is a real sense of belonging here
Social Club provides a great space to reflect, learn and grow by spending time with peers and hearing from people who know because they’ve been there. It’s a chance to step out of the day to day and access both support and constructive challenge and I find it a very valuable investment of time.
If you seek to understand how others lead their businesses then the Social Club offers an unique insight into different worlds and what makes for effective leadership in a variety of environments. The transferability of so many scenarios has helped me to consider how I can be even more effective in my role as leader and the Social Club offers a safe space to challenge my thinking
Social club has enabled me to develop connections with other CEO’s in different areas, I find this very helpful and it provides you with more of a national picture rather than your own area/bubble. Through social club I now have professional relationships with other CEO’s who I am confident to seek support and advice from. I look forward to Social club events and prioritise them in my diary as I know that I benefit from them, ultimately my organisation does too. The speakers are interesting and diversity which provides you with food for thought and triggers stimulating conversations.
Social Club attracts positive, engaging leaders focussed upon success, sometimes it’s just great to be around and feel the collective energy, other times it can be challenging and demand constructive contribution. As a social enterprise CEO it is the best support and development initiative I have come across by a very long way.
This is not some old duffers funny handshake offering. For me the Social Club has been Dynamic, Diverse and Demystifying that elusive collective magic that turns social justice into clear focused leadership that achieves lasting positive social impact
Leadership of Social Enterprises and Charites can be an all-encompassing and fulfilling job. But, it can also be lonely and isolating. Social Club has been a brilliant way to have protected time with those in similar positions, to network and learn, combined with action learning sets and also a carefully selected, interesting and often inspiring speaker. I have never left the session without a renewed energy and always with fresh ideas.
Social Club is a great way to have Chatham House type discussions with like-minded individuals who both challenge and support
