Somerset VCSE Leaders Conference 2017 'Innovation and Collaboration'
The Somerset VCSE Strategic Forum is a collaboration between Somerset Community Foundation, Somerset County Council, Spark, Engage and The Community Council for Somerset. We recognise the huge diversity of the work carried out by voluntary organisations and the important contribution it makes in supporting our communities in Somerset.
This one day conference is an opportunity for Chief Executives, Senior Managers and Trustees of local VCSE sector organisations to hear about and debate the latest thinking on a range of key issues. This year's theme is 'Innovation and Collaboration'. Throughout the day we will hear from great speakers including:
Katie Boswell of the influential thinktank NPC (New Philanthropy Capital)
Dr Carol Jacklin-Jarvis of the Open University Business School will speak on collaboration across sectors from voluntary sector
Stephen Chandler, Director of Adult Social Service at Somerset County Council
Mickey Green, Lead Strategic Commissioner of SCC, will present on the new Somerset Commissioning Academy
