Event description

Description

This year’s Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Professor Mike Thomas, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in Preston. Professor Thomas will be speaking on:

Kindness and Compassion – Challenges in Leadership Roles

The Elizabeth Bryan Foundation Trust is a charitable trust founded in memory of the eminent paediatrician Elizabeth Bryan, whose work with families with twins, or multiple births, brought together the best of skilled medical practice with a profound commitment to the wellbeing of her patients and their families. The Trust aims to inspire, educate, lead the debate and encourage all those involved from politicians, funders, managers, providers of services (doctors, nurses, social workers etc), patients, clients and carers to ensure that vision is central to their concern.

Each year a Memorial Lecture is organised to honour the memory of Elizabeth Bryan. It honours the values that Elizabeth Bryan held dear, the values held dear by the Trust, including care, concern and compassion. Bringing together stakeholders from all areas it seeks to inspire and educate, promoting an environment of learning and debate.

Professor Thomas will examine the concepts of kindness and compassion and their practical application in leadership. His lecture will encompass the variables that develop, support and challenge kind and compassionate leadership and include authenticity, relational management, equity, gender, organisational ethos and people development. Professor Thomas will contextualise kindness and compassion challenges within the structures of digital technological developments, time and resilience.

The Memorial Lecture will take place in UCLan’s Greenbank Lecture Theatre on Wednesday 11 October. Drinks and canapés will be served from 5.30pm. The lecture, which will include a Q&A session, will commence at 6.00pm.

The event is free to attend and free parking will also be available on our Greenbank and Victoria car parks. Sat nav for car parks: Victoria Street PR1 7DR.
