3rd July, 3.00 - 6.00 pm
at the Humanities Research Institute
University of Sheffield
A workshop to identify and address the key challenges in the region by shaping future management and leadership development. This is an initiative led by Sheffield City Council and the two universities in Sheffield.
This event will bring together a whole range of key agencies and sectors for the first time across Sheffield City Region (SCR).
SCR has recently signed an historic City Deal with Government to boost economic activity and create jobs; develop skills, infrastructure and transport. For our economic, social, health and environmental ambitions in SCR to be realised, as never before we need great leaders and managers that will strive to tackle the common challenges as well as being able to exploit the many future opportunities. We need future leaders and managers that:
…… to name just a few of the skills that will be required, alongside a very up to date and complex multi disciplinary knowledge base.
This workshop will consider what a Sheffield City Region Academy might achieve and how it might develop such leadership through a range of activities and developments, working closely with the two Sheffield Universities. You will hear about progress so far in our award winning SCR Leadership Programme which has had fantastic results for around 120 participants so far. We have much success to build on. However, we want to go much further. To do this we need leaders and aspiring managers across the region to work with us to set out the challenges future leaders and managers will face, so we can design appropriate development at all levels.

How to Find Us
The map below shows the location of the Humanities Research Institute in relation to the University.
Trams link the railway station and the city centre directly to the University. The tram stop is located at the back of the railway station. Trams from the station to the University run on the Blue route (destination "Malin Bridge").
Trams from the city centre to the University run on both the Blue route and the Yellow route (destination "Middlewood").
During the day, trams run every 10 minutes (15 minutes on Sundays) from 6.00am to midnight.
To reach the HRI disembark at the 'University of Sheffield' stop on Upper Hanover Street. Cross the tramlines, and then the road. After crossing the road, turn left and then immediately right into Leavygreave Road. The HRI is on your right, and can be approached either from Leavygreave Road itself, or from Gell Street, which is the first turning on the right.
Buses to the University are frequent and inexpensive. From the railway station and coach station you can take the number 60 directly to the University. Other buses from the city centre include the 51 and 52.
Parking on campus is limited, so if you plan to drive to the University please arrange parking with your hosts in advance. This helps us ensure you find a convenient location. We recommend that, unless you know the city well, when travelling from the north, east and south you should approach Sheffield by the M1 (and M18 if necessary). From the west, use the A57 Snake Pass via Glossop. The recommended main routes to and from the University are indicated on the Central Sheffield map.
You may find that Park and Ride is the most convenient way to get to the University if you are arriving in Sheffield by car. The University is well served by trams connected to park and ride facilities at Middlewood and Nunnery Square (off the A630/A57/A61 Parkway).
