Annual Conference 2020: Communication, Communication, Communication

2 September 2020

Due to restrictions imposed by Covid-19 the College has taken the decision to move the FST Annual Conference 2020 online. This will be a global event aimed at all who work in health care, with a focus on the role of the surgical team in delivering care. As a member of the FST you are invited to register for this free online conference on 16 October 2020.

The themes of this year's conference will be listening, communication, respect, trust, accountability, growth conversations, curiosity, emotional intelligence, and the trainee – the next generation. 

The conference is headlined by the global leader, Bob Chapman, CEO of Barry -Wehmiller and co-author of the bestselling book; ‘Everybody Matters – the extraordinary power of caring for your people like family’.  His message is changing the way people think and is building a #betterworld through #trulyhumanleadership and solutions that believe #EverybodyMatters.  He is in high demand on the TED circuit, cited as the mentor to Simon Sinek and by the President Bush Foundation.

This will be a first for the College, and we are grateful to Chapman & Co for providing their expertise in running interactive online events, which has enabled us to deliver this year’s FST Conference.
