ICW Members Day 2023

Wednesday 12th July 2023
The Lansdowne Club, London W1

We were delighted to host our members and their guests at the 2023 ICW Members Day on 12th July at the prestigious Lansdowne Club, welcomed by our Chairman Lord David Evans of Watford. This special event presented a unique opportunity for our individual members to network and engage at the highest level and gain vital insights from expert speakers on key collaboration topics.

Frank Lee, our CEO, shared the ICW's Strategic Objectives for the Future, with our inspiring plans and new developments.

Stephen Blakey (FICW) from Network Rail launched the new ICW paper on Collaborative Leadership Insights. He offered a really engaging presentation, with an expert panel of contributors to the document. The paper is thought-provoking, rich in content, and has established a clear definition of Collaborative Leadership and the associated competencies and will inform ICW's thinking on how best to develop tomorrow's collaborative leader. It is now available to members in their hub.

Denis Leonard (MICW) from Graham Group UK presented a really insightful presentation about "The Evidence for Structured Collaboration". Denis has developed a model to highlight the different and positive performance that can be achieved when structured collaboration is applied. This is a key area for further discussion and development with members.

Bill Taylor (FICW) from the ICW 'Structured Collaboration' Special Interest Group shared how the recently launched ICW Travelator defines a growth pathway for organisations to develop their collaborative capability. Bill raised some thought-provoking points on how leading edge collaborative organisations can highlight how they are driving innovation, improvement and creating greater value.

Adrian Miller, Membership Services Director, provided a preview of some of the initiatives and partnerships that the Institute has launched in service of its strategic objectives and to support the interests of our members. Following this was our annual Special Interest Groups (SIG) Marketplace.

Finally Frank hosted a Members' Voice session, giving our members a platform for requests, suggestions and views. We value our individual members and their feedback.

We would like to thank all our members that attended the event. Members can access the slides from the day in their Hub.
