Following on from the success of our Executive Masterclass delivered earlier this year in the Philippines, we're delighted to offer this unique opportunity once again in partnership with The International Co-operative and Mutual Insurance Federation, and the CLIMBS Life and General Insurance Cooperative, through its CLIMBS institute.

The offer

As part of a unique package offer priced at just £250, in addition to the masterclass, delegates will also gain access to all three days of our Centenary Conference, taking place from 26-28 November 2019 at Rochdale’s iconic Town Hall.

Masterclass in detail

This course will run on Monday 25 November 2019 at ICMIF’s historic home on the outskirts of Manchester, UK. Led by specialists in leadership and management training including our CEO Simon Parkinson and Mike Ashurst, Vice President, ICMIF, this one day certified masterclass brings together international leaders from credit unions, co-operatives and mutual insurers and covers a number of different areas including:

  • How do Co-operative leaders think globally and act locally?
  • What values make a cooperative leader and why? 
  • How to adopt a values-led, adaptive and ethical leadership approach.

Limited to just twenty delegates, the delivery will be focused on interactive breakout sessions, maximising the opportunity for networking and the sharing of best practice examples. Real life case studies will also form the basis of all learning materials, providing tangible examples that all delegates will be able to put into practice.

About the Conference
