Harnessing the lessons of the pandemic to strengthen public and third sector collaboration

Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 11:00 to 12:15

As the Covid pandemic has shown us, the complex challenges facing Northern Ireland cannot be addressed by any single organisation or any single sector.


Collaboration across boundaries is key to successful delivery for citizens. In some areas, collaboration between the public sector and the third sector was a key element of the Covid19 response, and we saw leaders from the two sectors working together like never before.


As we continue to deal with the impact of this pandemic, there is an opportunity to reset traditional ways of working, to embed what we learnt and to embrace new ways of working across our sectors. 


At this event, a panel of key figures from both sectors will reflect on how we build and strengthen our relationships:

  •       David Sterling, Chair, Chief Executives’ Forum
  •       Moira Doherty, Deputy Secretary, Dept for Communities
  •       Michele Janes, Barnardo’s
  •       Anne-Marie McClure, Start 360

The event will include the launch of the CEF/CO3 Leadership Exchange Programme, facilitated by Grant Thornton.  Patrick Gallen, GT’s People and Changer Partner will outline the programme, which is now in its third year and enables a group of leaders from each sector to step into each other’s world, illustrating the benefits of building relationships, understanding each other’s perspectives and expanding networks.


This will be an interactive event with the opportunity for discussion with the panellists.

Spaces are limited and will be filled on a first come first served basis.
