Life as a third sector boss can be stressful and lonely – it’s hard enough to keep going let alone focus on strategy or innovation. Pat Armstrong OBE, Chief Executive of ACOSVO – a long-term partner of RBS/NatWest Social & Community Capital – shares her learning on how to support current and future leaders.

 

This conversation was captured by Tess Gallagher who sat in on a meeting of ACOSVO members looking to discuss what today’s Chief Officers can do to engage the Third Sector’s next generation of leaders. Tess works for a STEM education charity- you can see more of her writing here.
