On Thursday 19th March, Odgers Berndtson Group hosted our first Midlands Healthcare Dinner at Opus restaurant in Birmingham with representation from all three group divisions; Odgers Berndtson, Odgers Interim and Berwick Partners.
The evening brought together over thirty key Executive and Non-Executive Directors from organisations across the Midlands health economy to hear our guest speaker Sir Ian Carruthers, Chair of Portsmouth NHS Trust, share his views on the ‘leadership and management challenges facing the NHS’.
His speech was entertaining, insightful and inspirational, as you would expect from someone with a career spanning over forty years in the NHS. He then took questions from the floor with topics ranging from how to encourage and shape a new generation of leaders in the NHS and how to manage national drivers versus local needs.
The event was a huge success and a great example of our reach across the healthcare market in the Midlands and our profile across the region.
