Change Champions: Why do we need them? | A multi-dimensional discussion on their relevance today

November 29, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am

What it’s about:

It’s time to pull out the trusted hub-and-spoke model of change champions and have a real talk about what this looks like in practice. For many in our community, champions have been a key to advocating change, managing resistance and building trust across changing organisations. For others, the experience has led them to question whether we need them at all. 


Our community is asking:

  • What is the value of change champions for the business investing in change?
  • How might we get the most value out of champions and balance business-as-usual work?
  • What makes a suitable champion and how might we identify them from those simply on the bench?
  • How might we maintain champion growth and momentum?
  • What other models out there are working alongside democratised, open-source change approaches?


With our expert guests, we’ll be covering the answers to these questions and more.

  • Ali Juma – Change & Communication Specialist | Inner Game of Change Podcast
  • Ali Uren – Founder and Director | Kiikstart
  • Karen Ferris – Director | and Macanta Consulting

Space for Change™

A collective of like-minded transformation consultants who are passionate about human-centric approaches to change. We catch up monthly and talk about topics that matter.

Why? Because everybody deserves to find their place, now and in the future, so we can make history.

At Earth2Mars, we believe and invest in our human potential to expand our horizons and continuously learn and grow together. For us, our mission is to see humanity become an interplanetary species, but how can we ever hope to coexist on Mars if we still haven’t learned to do this on our home planet first?  

We catch up at monthly events and talk about topics that matter to humanity, so come and join your tribe on Linkedin.
