The learning journey continues...

The 13th - 15th November has been a whirlwind of activity as I have been in Cardiff speaking at the Institute of Healthcare Management's Annual Conference.

Monday evening was a wonderful Civic Reception, hosted by the Mayor of Cardiff and NHS Wales in the beautiful Cardiff castle. Whilst Tuesday evening was a black tie Awards Dinner celebrating the services and experiences of many healthcare managers. During the conference on the Tuesday and Wednesday I spent hours talking to delegates about networking and its value to management and personal development.

A surprise opportunity also came my way, a chance to be interviewed by, not one but two, TV production companies, GBTV and NICE TV (a part of ITN consulting). Once the films are edited and produced, there will be a link to them from this blog.

Back home time is now being spent following up contacts and developing new friendships... and in a couple of weeks, I am doing it all over again in London.

The learning journey continues...

October has been busy teaching on UG and PG programmes with a total of 48 new students and November is proving to be the same.

In addition to the teaching I am speaking about knowledge sharing and networking at two exciting conferences, one in Cardiff on 13th - 15th November for the Institute of Healthcare Management the other in London on 30th November for the NHS Networks Annual Conference

With all of this talking, I am going to need some throat lozenges!
