About the conference

We are excited to announce that Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust will be hosting an Appreciative Inquiry-themed conference day on "The Power of Words and the Language of Healthcare" featuring three expert speakers:

  • Dr Chris Turner, Civility Saves Lives
  • Janet Leighton, Director of Happiness at Timpson
  • Donna Ockenden

The day will question and examine the current status quo in healthcare by looking at industry, national initiatives and what is happening locally using Appreciative Inquiry.

We hope to challenge everyday norms and reframe staff connections by discussing:

Civility Saves Lives campaign and the importance of civility in healthcare.

  • Timpson’s culture of upside-down management
  • Using Appreciative Inquiry for self and staff
  • Promoting engagement and staff encouragement
