ACEVO Membership offer

We recognise that being a CEO is demanding and that sometimes creating the space to gain perspective on complex issues is challenging. ACEVO has therefore teamed up with Gary Buxton to deliver a year of Action Learning.

Action Learning Sets provide a space for up to eight CEOs to gather together every two months to explore the issues they are currently navigating. Each cohort remains consistent over the full 12 months and therefore the peer support, trust and mutual understanding grows over this period. Dates for the next cohort intake are detailed below.

Action Learning dates

​All Action Learning Set Sessions will take place between 09:30 and 11:30am (2 hours), and will take place on Zoom. At the following link:

  • Thursday 12th May 2022

  • Thursday 7th July 2022

  • Thursday 1st September 2022

  • Thursday 10th November 2022

  • Thursday 12th January 2023

  • Thursday 9th March 2023

We share the dates for the whole year well in advance so you can get them all booked into your diary early. We hope you can attend every session, but any missed sessions are still chargeable.

Our first session will focus on introductions - both to each other and the Action Learning Process.
