I am a highly experienced chair of conferences and summits of all sizes, from
audiences of a few dozen to 1,300. I hosted the main stage at NHS Expo,
chaired the Electoral Commission’s International Observers Programme for
the EU referendum and 2015 general election, led the NHS England AGM
and chaired the NICE annual conference 2023.
I bring pace and energy, engage with the speakers to bring out the best in
them and involve the audience in lively debate.
Chairing online conferences and round tables
I can help you bring a professional touch to your online conference or round
table. I take my chairing skills online with 4K quality streaming, studio lights
and green screen, backed up by my usual attention to detail in programme
development and event preparation.
I develop the programmes for major conferences and events, drawing on
expert knowledge and contacts to devise stimulating content which will drive
delegate numbers. Events I have worked on include the NICE annual
conference and summits for Dods Parliamentary Communications.
I am an engaging, knowledgeable and experienced speaker on the NHS,
local government, leadership and public service reform. I speak at both public
and private sector events, illuminating my talks with insights, analysis and
I work with public and private sector teams to design and run workshops and
development programmes. I create an energetic, creative and engaged
environment to ensure every participant feels involved, valued and motivated.
Leading board debates
I lead discussions with boards and senior management teams about the
latest developments in the NHS and local government and what they mean
for their organisations. I have extensive experience of the relationship
between the public and private sectors, and the implications of policy
changes and the financial climate.
