Platform event - speakers, buffet and networking!

Last night I attended a networking event arranged by The Centre for Health and Social Development
If you are looking for high quality consultancy, training or research expertise in the public sector and social enterprise then they can help you.

We met at the impressive Liverpool Medical Institute

The evening was the second Platform event and there will be more planned for later in the year.

The speakers were Dr. David Colin-Thomé, National Clinical Director for Primary Care
and Fay Selvan of Big Life Group

During a very tasty buffet I chatted to a number of people including Emma Beck, a client director from Place. Place Group provides consultancy, programme management and delivery services which are focused on driving the best possible outcomes for young people, their families and their communities. Their services have been designed to guide you and your stakeholders on a journey of transformation.

Also to Helen from Active 8 Success -
Active 8 Success deliver high quality support to enable young adults with mental health issues to fulfill their inherent potential.
Based in Birkenhead, Merseyside we provide young adults with a personalised, responsive, and ‘client-led’ service.

I also chatted to Jo, a nurse practitioner from Blacon Children's centre{77FB110B-6763-413B-A6EE-CBD0D1713CB1} and told her about the day programme I have for such centres with my colleague Ann Girling, a health visitor.

Thank you to the Hope Centre for an informative evening and the opportunity to network. When is the next one?!
