Why You Should Attend
Most change practitioners are seen by their clients as providing a satisfactory degree of value – meaning, the leaders they support regard them as “adequate” but are neither disappointed nor ecstatic by the results they achieve.
This means that change initiatives, not to mention the practitioners themselves, are expendable.
However, there is a much smaller group of change professionals who are viewed as exceptionally capable at navigating change, and are extremely influential when offering their observations and recommendations.
These highly trusted advisors draw on two elements that create their success – and recognize which of these elements is truly the “secret sauce”.
Our guest speaker, Ed Boswell (of Conner Advisory® and Conner Academy®), will share the recipe for this “secret sauce”.
Using examples from his current work with international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), Ed will show you how this recipe can be embedded into the fundamental value change practitioners provide to the organizations we serve.
Meet Your Speaker: Ed Boswell
Ed Boswell is the co-founder and CEO of Conner Advisory® – a consulting practice established for the sole purpose of supporting leaders who are pursuing changes that matter.
In this capacity, he and his partner, Daryl Conner, support leaders from a diverse set of humanitarian and development organizations such as World Vision, Doctors without Borders, and Habitat for Humanity as well as associations such as InterAction and Inside NGO that support the international NGO community.
Ed and Daryl have also created Conner Academy® – a practice that provides professional development for seasoned change practitioners and leaders who desire to make a disproportional impact on the organizations they serve.
