Showcasing some of the often less-heard voices from across the NHS, TEDxNHS has returned bigger than ever this year, and ICHP are proud to be the single strategic partner.
Taking place in Indigo, in London’s prestigious O2 arena, on Friday 4 October, this year’s event centres around the theme of ‘Beyond our Component Parts’ and features talks on everything from NHS’s people and culture, to innovation and spreading ideas.
As single strategic partner, at Imperial College Health Partners, we share the same ambition of driving positive change across health and care, and feel honoured to have been a part of this wonderful initiative which has gone from strength to strength over the last few years.
TEDxNHS is leading the way in finding new ways to engage and empower through harnessing the power of storytelling – truly inspiring the health and care workforce to make positive change happen and drive improvements for patients and professionals.
We were first introduced to the potential of TEDxNHS when we became their main sponsor in 2016 after being introduced to their co-founders. After witnessing first hand that year’s incredible event and the inspiring speakers, and the reaction of health and care professionals to this, we knew TEDxNHS was truly unique and a special opportunity to inspire positive change in the NHS. It was an opportunity that ICHP wanted to be part of; we wanted to secure TEDxNHS’ future, support its growth and ensure its legacy.
This is why in 2017, we pledged to build on our support of the inaugural event by becoming the first strategic partner of TEDxNHS.
This ongoing partnership has meant we have been able to support the strategic development and growth of TEDxNHS. This is now a growing movement building year on year creating vast personal development opportunities not just for the speakers but also the wider NHS workforce. The volunteers made up of NHS colleagues make this event possible and have created a vast TEDxNHS network and we are proud to have encouraged members of our own ICHP team to be part of TEDxNHS family.
And this is just the beginning.
We are excited about what’s next for TEDxNHS and are already looking ahead to not only next year but five, 10 years from now and how TEDxNHS will continue to provide a platform to spread and inspire change, creating a healthier population and a happier workforce. This is why we’re delighted to continue our longstanding partnership with the TEDxNHS team to bring you ‘Beyond our Component Parts’ for 2019.
