A bit more about us

Our members shape the chapter agenda and suggest relevant topics for future sessions. Some of the themes we are working on include delivering enterprise wide change in a collaborative world, creating meaningful & purposeful change, building change resilience and using NLP in order to communicate about change more effectively.

The purpose of the Yorkshire Chapter is to become the focal point for Yorkshire’s change management community and to support the professional development of our change community members.

We will do this by seeking out and bringing together anyone with an interest in realising fantastic business change outcomes and people change experiences and, via the holding of fun, engaging and explorative events, we will raise awareness of global change management best practices, all with the aim of signposting and helping our community members develop their professional credibility and capability.
