We have had lots of interest in the event but many people would prefer to attend the event in London.  As a result we have decided to cancel this session and host the same session in London on the 10th October 2018. We do hope to see you there instead and apologise for the short notice of the change.


There has been a lot of talk about the funding crisis facing the Social Care sector.  However, as leaders of your organisation, a significant fear is that there are many different crisis situations you may face that, if not managed well, could cause lasting damage to your business.  

From a high-profile death in service to allegations of abuse, serial complainants pursuing an online campaign against you, a financially unsustainable contract or some high-profile litigation that threatens your viability.

The abuse at Mendip House and the recent Oxfam scandal are the latest high-profile examples of crisis situations.

Our Chief Executive’s update briefing this year will focus on updating you on legal developments which will enhance your abilities to lead through a crisis.

Why should you attend?

Our team of experts will guide you through a workshop that will explore the way you can respond to some of the potential crises you may face and the key legal principles that it will help to have at the forefront of your mind when managing a crisis. 

The workshop will work through scenarios based on real-life situations and build your awareness of:

The legal framework for dealing with damaging online content and your responses on social media

Dealing with whistle-blowing at a senior level

Your obligations to commissioners, the CQC and  other key stakeholders when serious abuse is alleged to have taken place

Managing disputes and significant debt recovery

Getting the governance right in a crisis


Huw John, Chief Executive of The Camphill Village Trust will share some personal observations on leading the charity through a sustained media and high-profile litigation campaign against the leadership and governance in response to necessary changes.


Registration is at 9.30 am for a 10.00 am start, and the session will finish with lunch at 13.30 pm. 

Who should attend?

This session is designed for chief executives of health and social care organisations. It provides an opportunity to understand key issues and network with your peers, as well as our in-house experts.

Feedback for last years’ event included:

“Best and most relevant briefing I’ve been on all year!”

Steve Allen, Chief Executive, Friends of the Elderly
