Excellence in Place Leadership Programme

Creating an environment for change demands fresh thinking.

As part of our commitment to driving innovation, ADEPT is launching its second Excellence in Place Leadership programme, in partnership with Amey.

About the programme

We want to bring together forward-thinking ‘thought leaders’ from across ADEPT to examine the key issues and opportunities affecting our sector.
The aim is to create an enduring, self-sustaining and inclusive professional network of thought leaders and influencers, so we are looking for a diverse and inspiring group of 10-12 people who can, and will, make a difference.
The new forum will:

  • Shape the way ADEPT members do business
  • Create an environment for change
  • Catalyse fresh thinking
  • Influence strategy across place

Timings and modules

Typically each session will include keynote thought leaders, structured discussions and activities to create thought pieces, policy proposals, blogs and articles that can be shared with a wide range of audiences to challenge and stimulate conversation. We will hold a preliminary briefing with the programme team and new cohort before Christmas 2020 to decide the first topic for the 2021 programme. Topics for future sessions will be agreed and developed via an organic process by agreement within the group.

Launching in early 2021, there will be four one-day sessions over a 12-month period, hosted by an independent facilitator:

  • 22 January 2021
  • 26 March 2021
  • 11 June 2021
  • 10 September 2021
