Introduction to xCHANGE webinars

What makes our xCHANGE series different to most other webinars is the emphasis on enabling a conversation, one which allows an exchange of views between members and the co-creation of actions that will support change. To receive invitations to our webinars simply join the Network.

Feedback received from participants at xCHANGE webinars includes: * Beautifully designed forum with insightful speakers * A great atmosphere * It's been excellent * I’m really happy to be part of this team * A great conversation * Great forum which adds value for all * A highly relevant, tightly structured but still dynamic conversation *

After each webinar, we produce a summary of the key lessons, including embedded video clips.  The summaries are a useful reminder of the discussions and particularly helpful if you are unable to attend a webinar.
