On Tuesday February 28th our Project Engagement Lead Tommy had the great honour to give the keynote address at the NHS West Midlands Leadership Academy Recognition Awards.
It was an inspiring event and wonderful to hear of the dedication, passion and stories from all the nominees and winners. Many thanks to Suzanne Harris Director of the WM Academy and all the team for the kind invite.
The event was beautifully hosted by ‘Dreadlock Alien ‘ from the West Midlands, a wandering wordsmith and poet, who brought together the story of the people and day.
After Tommy had left the stage ‘Dreadlock Alien’ presented him with this moving poem that he has written while Tommy was speaking.
This poem captured so many of the things important to Dementia Carer Voices and the work we do.
Thank you for a wonderful day; for the kindness, inspiration and for the fabulous gift of a poem that Tommy will cherish forever.
