A bit more about us
We are passionate about the North West and want to create a unique and professional network backed by the professional standards and credibility of the Change Management Institute. We aim to provide stimulating and thought-provoking events for our members and guests.
We are keen to meet as many of you as possible, whatever your interest in Change Management may be. Perhaps you are an academic, a freelance consultant, a student or corporate Change Manager, or perhaps this is all new to you. We aim to bring everyone who has an enthusiasm about change management together to talk about this professional discipline whether you are just setting out in Change or are an ‘old timer’.
We have a dynamic and proactive team of volunteers organising our activities. We welcome new volunteers, please contact us if you're interested in joining the team.

Paul Clavering, Chapter Co-Lead
