I am a faculty associate with NHS R&D North West, winners of the NWC Award for ‘Most Innovative NHS Team 2017’. Specifically I work with them as a Creative Communication Engagement Facilitator. I specialise in creative ways to communicate research findings, and FUN. Centring my workshops on Fun, participants step just enough outside of their comfort zone to engage in new ways of learning that can have profound effects on self-confidence, leadership skills, community of practise, networking and resilience.
I lead and co-deliver workshops supporting Health care researchers to communicate their research findings in creative ways (moving away from ‘death by power point’!).
This has highlighted the need for flexible and creative approaches to communicating within corporate settings, and sharing of ideas, I am always happy to explore new ways of communication.
I also co-deliver on NHS leadership programmes across the NW, providing creative communication workshops and communication support.
I have run workshops for the trust including; 'Talking Textiles', 'Re-imagining the poster presentation' and reflective collage for reflecting on influencing styles'. And have interviewed guests for their 'Wonder Women' series; https://research.northwest.nhs.uk/work/film-series-3-wonder-women/
