Public Policy Projects (PPP) is pleased to invite you to our October health & care thought leadership breakfast with Chair of NHS Improvement, Baroness Dido Harding “Leadership and Talent Management in the NHS”.

As policy makers deliberate over potential long-term funding options for the NHS, the Chair of NHS Improvement is at the heart of improving quality and efficiency across the sector.  Given the nature of the subject, this will be a prime opportunity to discuss the requirements to widen the debate on talen management and leadership.  Weeks before the Budget, our Autumn breakfast will be a good opportunity to discuss some of the key issues affecting the sector as well as question one of the leading thought leaders with extensive experience from retail.

Date: Wednesday, October 24th 2018

Time: 7.45am – 9.30am

Location: The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG
