The Starfish Place has been developed in memory of one of the co-founders of Towards Outstanding  Leadership, Ian Lawson, who sadly passed away in February 2018.
 
Ian truly believed that everyone should have the opportunity to develop their leadership including  those that may not have access to the resources to do so and it's in that spirit that this bursary  place has been established on our Towards Outstanding Leadership Programme.
  
The place on the Towards Outstanding Leadership Programme is offered free of charge with the  participant covering their own additional expenses such as travel.  You can see information about  the programme here.
 
Potential beneficiaries of the Starfish Place will need to complete an application demonstrating  how   participation in the programme would benefit them personally and in their organisation and  how they   would use this development to increase their own leadership impact and influence.  Applicants should   have a passion for leadership development and the benefits this can bring and be fully committed to   attending the whole programme and associated activities (coaching and  workplace shadowing). The   deadline for a place on the next programme, is by the end  of Wednesday 31st July.
 
The process
Those applying need to complete the application form and attach their case for inclusion in this leadership programme.  They can apply in the way that best suits them - a written statement, video, PowerPoint presentation or a mixture.  They should include supporting statements and testimonials if possible.  Applications need to be received by This email address is being protected from spambots.

Dates for the next programme are:
 
Module 1: Tuesday 1st & Wednesday 2nd October 2019
Module 2: Wednesday 4th & Thursday 5th December 2019
Module 3: Tuesday 4th February 2020
 
So where does the starfish come into it? You may have heard Ian tell the starfish story as he often did. For him, this story illustrated the importance of making a difference. You can see him telling the story here - a few months before he died, he and Maggie recorded a masterclass series at the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association - or you can read it here.
