THE POWER OF OUR PURPOSE
TO CREATE ENVIRONMENTS WHERE LEADERSHIP FLOURISHES
It has been proved! The Social Return on Investment study shows key learning from our members. They have confirmed our purpose – that leadership flourishes when the chief executive has confidence with modest and secure self-esteem. This enables their team’s performance to be enhanced and replicated, satisfying a larger cohort of beneficiaries.
Ella grew in 2016, working with more organisations, but also experienced financial challenges. Happily, we have reversed the situation due to you, our remarkable leaders, freezing your payments and some working generously as volunteers. Enormous thanks to all of you! We have now reorganised with total focus on our purpose.
We are running at a small surplus and have a strong platform to make significant growth. We also have a growing pool of committed, high calibre volunteer leaders. We expect to be working with 350 charities and social enterprises this year, with a new mix together with successful business executives who will support our purpose.
This is now a rally for each one of us to bring in new members. We want to double our size so that we can offer bursaries to enable more people to benefit.
Let’s recruit, let’s have fun and let’s make a difference!
