Health Data Research UK would like to invite you to the first of our quarterly I.C.E Breaker Sessions (insights, communications and engagement), which are aimed at bringing colleagues working in communications, engagement and marketing teams from across the health, research and science sector together to share learnings, network and collaborate.  

Our first session, ‘Impact: starting with the why’ will be on Wednesday 13 July from 4pm at the Wellcome offices in Euston, London.

We will be joined by Suzy Gallier – PIONEER Health Data Research Hub, on how ‘starting with the why’ positively impacted the work of PIONEER Hub, and Steve Palmer – Wellcome Sanger Institute, on the importance of internal communications to drive ‘the why’ around the implementation of a five-year strategy. 

A fireside chat with Suzy and Steve will lead into informal Q&A session with the opportunity to ask questions, discuss our own experiences and hopefully learn a lot from each other.  

Following this, we can stay for drinks so we can collaborate and get to know each other better! 

Please register by clicking the link below and please do share with colleagues or networks who may be interested.
