Leaders' Impact

Having achieved success in their own business, many leaders want to have impact across the region. This influence might start from within the role in their organisation (eg by improving the organisation’s social value), or it might involve leading beyond the organisation – for example, through voluntary positions, NED or advisory roles.

Through the Leaders’ Network, we are bringing together opportunities for our members to embrace ideas, organisations and initiatives that might improve their knowledge or understanding of certain issues, or amplify their voice. Some of these opportunities will come from us at the Chamber, and some from our members or the wider North West community.

Please do let us know if you would like us to consider adding your event or network to this list:
