It is probably time for this responsibility to be shared out more widely within the network; colleagues are invited to volunteer either beforehand by email or on the day if they would like to lead on any aspect of the day.

Rebecca Nestor is an organisational consultant, leadership developer and facilitator; and a doctoral student at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, investigating the dynamics of leadership. Her recent professional projects include support for managed growth in a university department, executive coaching and leadership development programmes for charities and universities.

Chris Tanner is an organisational consultant, and senior lecturer at the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex. Recent projects include executive director development within the NHS, team consultancies within therapeutic communities and a range of leadership development initiatives.
