With a focus on leading quality improvement, it was two inspiring days of sharing, learning & networking including:

  • Presentations by Kirsten Major, Paula Ward, Peter Homa and Margie Godfrey with other national and internationally renowned quality improvement leaders

  • Case studies and stories from the range of improvement work going on across Sheffield, West Kent, Doncaster, Northumbria and beyond

  • Attendees were able to lean more about MCA, and the Flow Coaching Academy (FCA)

  •  7 Talk Like TED's 

One of the most positive experiences I've had in the 20 years I've worked in the NHS. I don't think I heard one complaint/moan/gripe during the whole event and left feeling energised and that I can do so many things to improve things for patients and staff. Fabulous!

Honesty and authenticity of all participants. Hearing from patient experts

Great range of speakers and content. Friendly, sharing atmosphere. Different styles and learning events

The atmosphere and positivity was infectious and was created by everyone involved. Everything went to time and the days were very well organised.
