ODN Europe is pleased to offer a writing workshop, running from lunch time on Tuesday 30th May 2017 to lunch time on Thursday 1st June 2017 at the Roffey Park Institute, to those who would like to write for publication (or for other reasons they may hold).

The purpose of the workshop is to enable participants to produce a written piece that is (or is close to being) competitive for publication. It is a unique opportunity to explore the writing process (in general and your own), to be in dialogue with the faculty and fellow practitioners about your ideas, and to receive feedback from them about the content and format of your writing. It will be convened by four faculty members of the NTL Institute for Applied Behavioural Science:

  • Yvette Angelique Hyater-Adams, MA-TLA is a writer, teaching-artist, and a proven organizational change strategist for national and global businesses.
  • Kate Cowie, author of Finding Merlin: a handbook for the human development journey in our new organisational world (2012) and Editor of NTL’s practitioners’ journal, Practising Social Change.
  • Dr Ted Tschudy, a student, scholar, teacher and practitioner of Organisation Development who wishes he had written even more over the course of his 40 year career.
  • Dr David Kiel who writes about how OD methods can support improvements in community development, education, environment, government, health care and in developing human potential.

We are all empowered in our craft by the lessons learned and published by those who have gone before us. In order to make our greatest contribution as OD practitioners, therefore, we need to codify our experiences – for others, of course, but also for ourselves for, in doing so, we consciously reflect on our work, revise our theory of practice, devise new experiments that we can then enact, and so engage in a continuous process of learning.

Places are limited. The cost is: £350 for ODN Europe members and £425 for non-members (inclusive of lunches on all three days and dinners on Tuesday and Wednesday). Overnight accommodation with breakfast is available at Roffey Park at the discounted rate of £76 per night.

Please register your interest in attending with Sheila as soon as possible
