IVE collaborates for resilient leadership in Music Education Hubs

13th July 2017 - Adam Halls

IVE, alongside lead partners, has delivered our second annual conference for North of England Music Education Hubs, focusing on resilience in leadership.

Over the past two years we have supported the development of Music Education Hubs across the North of England. Through a process of consultation and challenge we have identified best practices and priorities for development. In collaboration with fellow Bridge organisations Culture Bridge North East and Curious Minds, we design and deliver an annual conference for North of England Music Education Hubs to share what we have learned and address consistent issues and priorities.

Our first conference in 2016 focused on:

For this year’s conference we identified how a focus on resilient leadership, both organisational and individual, could be crucial in underpinning a range of solutions to the challenges facing MEH’s. To this end, bespoke sessions on resilient leadership were planned and delivered with Sue Hoyle from The Clore Leadership Programme and Mark Robinson of Thinking Practice.

Response was extremely positive, with attendees focusing on how adaptability can be a strength that allows a business to repurpose existing resources and find new ways of operating without losing site of the core purpose of an organisation. As one attendee insightfully put it “Diversify but don’t dilute.”

Over 92% of attendees rated the event as very (35%) or extremely (58%) valuable. 96% said they would share learning with a colleague, 88% intended to change their practice, 88% intended to set-up meetings with contacts and 92% intended to read into the topic further.
