  • Title: Mutual Accountability in Servant Leadership at Graham Care

    Ernie Graham is a dairy farmer's son from Northern Ireland. His first degree was in Mechanical Engineering which he then followed with a full-time MBA. This led him to work in marketing with Shell International, initially for two years in London and then for over six years in Australia and Oman. In his early 30's, he fulfilled his ambition to run his own business when he and his wife (a GP) bought their first care home in Surrey. Since then, they have developed a group of purpose built homes for over 600 older people and they own a number of sites which will give them the capacity to care for around 1400 people, once the developments have been built out. Ernie is responsible for the operation of the business and works closely with staff on a day-to-day basis. Ernie seeks to run the homes using the principles of servant leadership. He encourages the home managers and their teams to move away from a "command & control" approach and to instead engender a more consensual form of leadership that recognises the value of people to fulfil the organisation's mission

  • Title: Remaining Open - life turns on a moment if we are ready and willing to shift

    Nicky Saunter has started, run and collaborated with a number of businesses, charities and community interest companies. The constants are a strong focus on nature, creativity, the joy of teamwork, and service to our wider community. They include an ethical cafe chain using local suppliers, environmental principles and supporting a wide range of causes, called The Boston Tea Party; a training not-for-profit using building with natural materials to bring people together and back to nature called Learning From The Land; a British wool manufacturing firm making acoustic clouds with a tiny carbon footprint, called the Woolly Shepherd; a drug legalisation charity called Transform Drug Policy Foundation; a community project called Wellington Mills CIC working to develop a village within a town in Somerset; and a charity to encourage UK land management to increase wildlife on our farmland. Each of these projects has come either from ideas generated over a shared meal, deep conversation, trusted friends or community volunteering. Nicky also paints, writes poetry and is also a qualified photographer specialising in monochrome printing and location portraiture. These aspects are a patchwork that will continue throughout her life, linking people together, having fun, making stuff and making stuff happen. Nicky has a degree in Mandarin Chinese from SOAS, London, a masters from Bath University in Responsible Business Practice, and an Associateship from the Royal Photographic Society.
