I recently hosted our first annual global leadership conference, sponsored by KPMG. This event, primarily for our programme alumni, was designed to be an extension of our leadership learning for those who have already embarked on their learning journey with us. We drew together some exceptional speakers, bringing to life the idea of learning from others globally while sharing what the NHS can do to help others. My short reflections are here.
On the day of the Academy’s first annual lessons in leadership conference, I suddenly realised the enormity of taking a day out of work, muttering in my mind, ‘why am I here?’, ‘don’t you realise that you have three assignments to hand-in in three weeks for your master’s degree’. All this coupled with planning for the impending Ready Now programme celebration event, plus planning for the new Ready Now cohort.
