“This common interest group is powerful”*

Welcome to the EBNE** Group, OCAID’s inspiring professional interest group for operational leaders who want to enable the continuous development of their organisational culture.

In essence, it’s an informal pro-bono meeting of a group of like minded people to chew the fat over emerging issues. We meet roughly twice a year to share ideas, discuss experiences and listen to thought leaders speak about a chosen topic of interest.

The EBNE Group: At a Glance

  • Provides space away from the coalface to share knowledge, information and best practices with like minded people
  • Aims to meet at least twice a year in the UK (usually once in the area north of London, once somewhere in the proximity of Manchester).
  • Each session generally features a client presentation in order to share best practice amongst each other and to promote discussion in the group.
  • Free to charge to EBNE Group participants (only your accommodation and travel will be down to you).

Forthcoming Meetings

Our next proposed meeting will be during November in the Liverpool area – precise date and location to be confirmed. Please let us know if you would like to join one of our groups.

We look forward to welcoming you to an EBNE group in the near future!

** EBNE: Excellent But Never Enough

Our name is based around the need for continuous improvement and the idea that so often today’s added value is tomorrow’s standard practice. The aim of the EBNE Group is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and real-world experiences between members, provoking discussion and thought leadership, encouraging continuous improvement.
