Lorrain Gailey, CEO

Everyone has very similar issues and, in fact, even in different types of charities many of the solutions and the way you reach the solutions are actually the same. So, learning from my peers is probably the most important part of the experience for me.


John Carroll, CEO

My entire organisation has completely changed with the help that I have had from ella Members.


Neil Jameson, Exec. Director

I find ella helpful on several fronts: colleagueship and solidarity with the Chief Executives who attend, the monthly session that has a speaker who addresses common concerns worries and challenges that we share, and regular mentoring.


Dara De Burca, Director

It is not just about sitting and absorbing other people’s ideas. It’s about a group process that generates solutions.


Simon Ross, CEO

I think it is a really important part of the experience that you do meet other people from the similar situation you are – – other Chief Executives. They can talk from their absolute knowledge rather than from a text book or second-hand.


Sue Porto, CEO

The thing that really inspires me about the ella leadership group is the opportunity to be able to come together with other Chief Execs and MDs from the not for profit sector, to be able to share issues in a safe environment, and to be able to hear from some of the best brains.
