Workshop: ‘Excellence in leadership is not defined by personality type, but by values and behaviour’

October 18, 2018 @ 9:15 am - 12:30 pm

legacy workshop at Todmorden Town Hall

Leading From the Front: ‘Excellence in leadership is not defined by personality type, but by values and behaviour’

The Calder Valley has a great richness of creative and cultural talent. How can we demonstrate regional leadership? Is it about people or place? Do small towns and villages have to dance to the metropolitan tunes of Manchester and Leeds or can we do things differently enough so that people stand up and take notice?

Speaker: Tom Andrews

Tom specialises in helping those that help others. He is a coach, facilitator and advisor working across the cultural and voluntary sector. He works particularly with leaders at times of transition, creating space for reflection.

Previously Tom was the founder and CEO of two national charities; Music for Change (promoting understanding between cultures through music) and People United (how participatory arts can grow kindness and social change). Starting both from scratch, he built these arts organisations by being an enthusiastic generalist and with a belief in the power of creativity in bringing people together.

Other things he has got up to include: working as strategic manager for the Royal Opera House (2006-2007), writing the first education pack on Tibet (1995-1997) and promoting artists from around the world as founder of the voluntary initiative Under One Sky (1993-1997). He was part of the first cohort of the Clore Leadership Programme (2004-2005), is an accredited Relational Dynamics coach (2014) and is a fellow of the RSA. He regularly mentors cultural and community leaders. He is a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council and is currently completing training to become a professional counsellor.
