North West Masterclass Collaboration
Developing leaders across the North West
We are an influential partnership formed from cross sector organisations in the North West. We represent the NHS, health and social care and local government to bring you a range of collaborative masterclasses.
We work in partnership with Advancing Quality Alliance (AQuA), North West Employers (NWLA), North West Leadership Academy (NWLA) and the North West Association of Directors of Adults Social Care Services (ADASS).
By combining our unique specialisms, the collaboration explores innovative thinking expert speakers; to provide cross sector knowledge sharing for leaders across the North West.
We have rescheduled our events programmes and masterclasses due to the Covid-19 pandemic. A number of this year's events are being held as webinars.

Learn how leaders can create environments that enable new power values to blend and work within and alongside old power structures.
The battle and balance between old and new power will be a defining feature of society and business in the coming years.
Old power is held by a few, tends to be present in hierarchies, and once gained it is jealously guarded. It is closed, inaccessible and leadership driven. There are many examples of Old Power in today’s society from the print media to power filled institutions.
New power operates differently, is held by many and is open, participatory and peer-driven. The goal with new power is not to hoard it (like old power) but to channel it. You tube, Crowd funding and the #Me Too movement are examples of new power in action. New power has a participatory element.
Building on the highly successful masterclass we held in 2019 on New Power with Jeremy Heimans, this masterclass will take this work to the next level.
Focused upon improvement, Helen will work with you to apply the participatory principles of new power values making them work within the old power structures, hierarchy and culture that are a defining feature of public sector services
At the end of the masterclass you will be able to:
Make better sense of new and old power values and the currency of each
Understand how you can apply the new power thinking of increasingly participatory approaches and make those approaches work within old power structures
Build a model of improvement that integrates new and old power values
Understand how to create environments that enable new power values to blend and work within and alongside old power structures
Share some of the challenges and opportunities that a participatory model of co-production may have in your workplace
