The Voice of Hospital Caterers
20th & 21st April 2023 | Hilton Birmingham Metropole

As Leadership & Development Forum Secretary 2023 for the South West Branch, I would like to invite you to join us in Birmingham.  The event will be held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 20th and 21st April 2023
There has been a significant delay in our planning due to the pandemic, but we are agreeing suitable arrangements to ensure that there is a natural flow from Forum 2022 to our own Forum in 2023.
The Forum Management Team (FMT) are busy pulling together a programme of events; this will include a Forum programme that will be relevant, challenging and thought provoking for delegates.  This is a superb way of introducing those new to the NHS as well as those that have developed into leadership roles within healthcare. It is key to strengthen our association with members that play a full part in shaping the future of our services.
An overview of timings for your diary:

Wednesday 19th April 2023 - informal dinner, detail tbc
Thursday 20th April 2023 - day one of the Forum schedule including exhibition open; President's Dinner
Friday 21st April 2023 - day two of Forum schedule including exhibition open; Branch Dinner
Saturday 22nd  April 2023 - all depart
To complement the programme of events, the Forum also includes a supplier exhibition. The Hilton Metropole is a great place for suppliers to meet catering leads and decision makers with like-minded colleagues over the two-day event.
I look forward to welcoming you all in Birmingham.
Philip Shelley
Forum Secretary
