Big thanks to Shevaun Mullender for inviting Tommy to speak at Sustainable Leadership – Using Networks to Grow Cohort  1.1 Elizabeth Garrett Anderson programme NHS Leadership Academy final event in Cambridge last week.

Tommy has had the great privilege to speak for Shevaun before as part of a tour of Essex, a few months back.  You can read more about that day and the inspiring pledges received HERE             

Thank you Shevaun and all who came along for a wonderful inspiring day.  Roy Lilly was also speaking at the event and has given us all much to think about.  Tommy was honoured to take questions with Roy and judge the pewter competition.


A wonderful day with kind people and our NHS leaders.
