09:15 - 09:45Keynote: The NHS People Plan – What does it mean for me? (optional)

In June 2019 the interim NHS England People Plan was announced. The Plan sets out a vision for a new way of working that will deliver more joined up, patient centered care while at the same time improving work-life balance and flexibility for staff across the organisation.

It’s an ambitious project with far reaching objectives, from improving leadership culture, to tackling workforce shortages and introducing new operating models. In this opening session, Helen Bevan will discuss what the NHS People Plan will mean for you, what changes are to come, and how its influence will be felt across the four nations.

14:00 - 16:45Minicourse: Managing complexity and uncertainty
We are operating as leaders in a world that is increasingly dynamic, fast moving and with so many complex dilemmas that there is often no “right” answer. In this lively and interactive session, Helen Bevan will help us explore some of the latest ideas, tools and approaches from leading practitioners of large scale change around the globe. We will reflect on the practical implications and opportunities for our work in a world where the balance between “old power” (positional power and authority) and “new power” (networks and social movements) is shifting. We will consider how to build our individual and collective capability for leading change and delivering results in this new world.
