In July 2019, the team at Impact Hub Bradford incubated a weekend leadership programme for social innovators, Leadership for Humankind, an “urban retreat” designed and delivered by Neil Gibb and Stella Horgan with some guidance and support from ourselves.
An inaugural cohort of sixteen attendees – drawn from technology, business, NGOs and commerce – worked through sessions that built their skills in embodied leadership, designing purpose, explored how to overcome barriers and enable participation.
Attendees came from around the UK and Europe and helped inform how this prototype event might be shaped into a broader programme with more participation from local communities.
We believe that Neil and Stella’s programme might be a useful universal programme for social entrepreneurs starting out, transitioning from other careers, or pivoting in new directions. If you’d like to partner with Impact Hub Bradford, contact our team today.
