We have designed this programme to make the most of a Friday morning and will cover: Leadership and change: How do we lead and manage the fast pace of change in our organisations and working environments? How can we get the best out of the relationships we manage and be adaptable, flexible and responsive and at the same time keep ourselves up to date with the needs and demands of our future workforce and our services? Come along and hear from others who will share their experiences and successes. The event provides an opportunity to meet learn from and network with regional colleagues and share your own experience and knowledge.
