Masterclass: Learn from Former Hostage and Crisis Negotiator, Cathy MacDonald
LONDON - 24 September 2019
The complexity of healthcare demands exceptional skills in Leadership and Teamwork. It also requires that we can react to incredibly challenging situations at a moment’s notice. Our conference speakers have extraordinary stories to tell which address many of these issues.
This is a patient safety conference with a big difference. Exceptional speakers, from a wide array of high risk environments, share their stories of endeavour, safety, risk, human factors, systems and quality improvement.
Our motivational and world renown speakers tell their own stories of overcoming seemingly impossible odds. The lessons we can all draw from their experiences will help us manage risk and make our work environments safer, more efficient and happier places.
