CEO Networks

Bringing together leading thinkers and CEOs from across the system

#TrustLeaders Networks

From our six regional CEO networks to our annual national CEO conference, we bring together leading thinkers and professionals from across the system to deliver training and development of the highest quality. Our work is informed by careful analysis of strategic leadership and policy issues of the moment, and underpinned with clear reference to best practice, research, and thought-leadership.

The most sensible, outward-looking, decent, people-centred network going. A group of people who want to make the system better for young people and the communities we serve. And who do it in a calm and measured way. I can not recommend highly enough.

Highly recommend all #TrustLeaders join Forum Strategy.
I was fortunate to join the NW Network from the start 5 years ago & don’t know where I or Focus Trust would be without it. We’ve learned so much & met so many great people #partnershipswithpurpose
