CEDN – Online Residential

The Chief Executive Development Network is uniquely positioned as a confidential and non-political, peer development network that offers reflection, renewal, regeneration and community. It offers learning and development support for chief executives, at a time when the challenge in the system to deliver today while creating the services for tomorrow is the greatest it has ever been.

We appreciate that all members of our NHS Chief Executive community are facing an unparalleled set of opportunities and challenges.  As well as overseeing recovery whilst anticipating winter pressures, we are still dealing with the unknown trajectory of the pandemic as we simultaneously change to system working, shaped by a new Secretary of State and NHS Chief Executive. Many of us recognise that we will need to transform how we work to lead through these combined challenges at a point of widespread weariness.

This Online Residential will give you the opportunity to think about how you respond to these realities, providing you with the space to learn, reflect, connect and replenish in an entirely confidential peer network.  Our broad theme for the two days will be Managing Recovery with Systems in Mind.

As with the in- person Residentials, we will build a supportive and honest environment, offering structured opportunities to meet new and familiar colleagues for rich and real conversations about issues of shared and current interest.  Running from 10.00 to 16.00, with an extended lunch from 12.00 to 13.30 on both days, we will design our programme together rather than following a set agenda, emphasising opportunities for reflection with and learning from peers.  Faculty will also offer new ideas and models where these are relevant, involving external contributors for their often provocative and different lived experience.

Date: 26th & 27th October, 10:00 – 16:00 (both days)
Audience: This session will be open to CEO/Accountable Officers across healthcare organisations.
