Virtual Event: GoTo

NHS Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Intrapreneurship

This event is for anyone interested in innovation, entrepreneurship or intrapreneurship. Contrary to common belief, the NHS has a long history of innovation and entrepreneurship. For example, the late Dr Jean Shanks, from 1925 to 1999, enjoyed a successful parallel career as an NHS clinical pathologist and innovative entrepreneur by founding her own pathology company and improving certain lab test times from days to hours.

Dr Shanks is one of many historical and present NHS professionals who have achieved success in medicine and business. They are the inspiration for this event. This event is NOT based on academic theory; the event Chairman and speakers all believe that innovation, entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship are analogous to swimming, ‘you can’t learn it or teach it from a book.’

So, what will you learn? You will learn ‘the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.’ The Chairman and speakers will provide a no-holds-barred tour of reality, sharing their knowledge, experience, and methods to succeed. Topics include:

  • The psychological disposition between an entrepreneur and intrapreneur.
  • The value of NEDs.
  • What investors look for in an investment proposal.
  • Insights on innovation from the UK Military.
  • Insights on innovation from leading USA innovators.
  • Insights from senior experienced clinical entrepreneurs.
  • What’s holding you back?
  • Panel discussion on what the NHS can improve to allow for Improved clinical innovation, entrepreneurship, and intrapreneurship.

Join us and have your mind stimulated and your passion ignited to progress on your chosen path.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience

Zoom

I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!

IBM

In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

Pascoe Healthcare

“We’ve worked with the Convenzis team for several years and their events are a regular occurrence for us. Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”

eConsult

“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
