You must login to the website to book your place

These meetings are an opportunity for ACEVO members to network locally, gain peer support and hear from specialist speakers on the issues that affect us all; leadership, governance, personal effectiveness, leading through change and managing the workforce.

The forums are round table meetings with a limited number of places available to ensure quality group discussion. They are usually hosted by a member or ACEVO Coporate Partner over a sandwich lunch.

These forum meetings are available to ACEVO members only. If you are not an ACEVO member but are interested in finding out more, please contact

Next meeting:

Date and Time:  14 March 2018, 11.45am - 2pm

Location: Womble Bond Dickinson, Temple Quay, 3 Temple Back East, Bristol BS1 6DZ

Speaker: Jon Sparks, CEO, Crisis

Topic: Jon Sparkes, CEO of Crisis, will be talking about his leadership journey – from his previous roles at SCOPE and UNICEF through to his current role, including the challenges and achievements. In Jon’s words: “Leading Crisis is a privilege that brings with it a huge sense of duty to support people and achieve change. I have a life-long commitment to tackling issues of inequality, and I think that homelessness existing in the UK in the 21st Century is one of the scandals of our time. If we don’t care enough about our fellow citizens to ensure everyone has a home we are getting something seriously wrong.”

The forum will be chaired by Jenny Berry, members are invited to come along, to ask questions, and share your experiences and challenges over a sandwich lunch.
