Our events

A senior operational movement.

Our conferences are based around our collective needs, both in our operational roles and personally leaders.

We shape our sessions to be subject-matter focused and we aim to secure a key industry leader to attend these sessions based on relevance amongst the network.  Our offer is to invite leaders to learn about us, our skills, passion and ideas and to work together across providers, partners and systems.

As #Proud2bOps we believe a crucial function of the network is to co-design and influence future operational delivery solutions.  This should be an inevitable result of working in collaboration with national policy makers, improvement programme and industry and forms our offer general support as a senior operational network.
