Advancing your Change & OD practice

The word is out! Our Organisation Development programme is beginning to make quite a name for itself. And you don’t need an OD role to benefit. It’s for anyone who needs to land change with people.

Advancing your Change & OD Practice returns for the 5th time. Now fully adapted for virtual participation. It’s delivered by two leading OD practitioners: Dr Sharon Varney & John Hovell. Here’s what previous participants had to say:

‘Superb! Theory and practice combined. Will start using tomorrow’

‘Challenging, educational, affirming, confidence building’

‘Excellent. The beginning of a journey of self-discovery’.

See our Advancing your Change & OD Brochure for more details about this programme.

Why attend?

As organisations strive to improve their ability to work at the speed of change, they need more people who have the knowledge and abilities to make change initiatives happen. That’s why developing an OD mindset and skill set is fast becoming an essential capability for all leaders, managers and professionals.

Real work, with a real client – helping the NHS

The centrepiece of the programme is real work with real clients – there’s no role play here! We’re delighted to announce that our clients for this workshop come from the NHS. They will be asking for your help with a real and current challenge in the NHS system. You won’t want to miss this amazing learning opportunity.

Who is it for?

Knowledge, learning and change professionals, especially leaders and managers. If you’re new to OD, you’ll discover the qualities and strengths you bring to OD to advance your change practice. And, if you’re already working in the field, you’ll learn where you can expand your OD range and maybe get out of a rut.

What we’ll cover on the programme

Over the three days, we will build upon what you bring and help you to advance your practice so you are better equipped to deal with your most pressing organisational issues. We expect you to leave with new insights, skills and strategies that you can immediately apply to your workplace.


Our tutors are both highly experienced OD practitioners, each with different styles and approaches. You can read their bios below.
