This Month: November


Welcome to “This Month.” Becky White, Communications Assistant, talks us through our jam packed November highlights!

Haelo Hosts

What a fantastic month! This month saw our annual conference held on the 10th and 11th November at The Lowry, Salford Quays.

We received fantastic feedback from speakers, delegates and staff on the emotional rollercoaster that was Haelo Hosts! It certainly redefined your average healthcare conference. Relive all the action from a jam packed two days in our not-so-live-blog here or review the conversation online using #HaeloHosts. Bring on Haelo Hosts ’17!

Speaker Spotlight: Michael Woodford

woodford-1Michael Woodford MBE opened Haelo Hosts ’16 and truly embodied this years theme of Daring Greatly. He rose through the ranks at Olympus to become the first non-Japanese CEO of the century-old company. After four months he was removed as CEO as recounted in Michael’s book Exposure, and the BBC documentary Full Exposure. The Olympus tale takes in the Yakuza, corporate secrecy, and Japanese concepts of loyalty and reputation. More generally it got to the heart of what is and what isn’t ethical capitalism. Read the full review here.

Haelo Film Festival

So we rolled out the red carpet on the Thursday evening of Haelo Hosts for the Haelo Film Festival to celebrate excellence in public sector films. All our attendees, Haelo Hosts delegates and nominees were suited and booted and ready for a night of 1920’s entertainment!

Science of Improvement: Festival of Learning Review

The Science of Improvement masterclass was held as part of the Haelo Festival of Learning. The one-day workshop gave a comprehensive overview of the science of improvement and provided detailed insight into its application. The masterclass was taught by Lloyd Provost, an internationally renowned expert in the education and application of improvement science.

Cameron Whytock, Improvement Science Fellow at Haelo, attended the event and reviewed the workshop. Read his review here.
