Future Phenomenal Women

Jacqueline Cornish
Thursday 14th June 2018 – 6 pm: – Dr. Jacqueline Cornish (OBE)

Dr. Jacqueline Cornish was appointed to the post of National Clinical Director Children, Young People and Transition to Adulthood in NHS England in April 2013. She is passionate about continuously striving for improved healthcare outcomes in children and young people, giving them and their families the best experience and delivering care safely to the highest possible standard. She believes that the strong synergy between clinicians, dedicated managers and commissioners leads to the best result for patients and is a hallmark of high performing organisations and services.

Dr Cornish has been a practicing clinician, having only recently stepped down as Director of Paediatric Stem Cell Transplant at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, and also had over 20 years’ experience of medical management in the NHS, having been Head of Division of Women’s and Children’s Services at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust for 10 years, before taking up the national post. With this clinical and managerial background, she continues with the help of a small team to contribute towards making a real impact on the improvement of health and wellbeing outcomes in Children and Young People in England. She believes strongly in parity, for CYP overall but importantly bringing mental health on a par with physical health in fully integrated pathways. She hopes to secure robust transition to adult services through multiagency partnership working for all young people with chronic and long term mental and physical health conditions.

6.45pm – Business coaching session with Dr. Maria C. Stafylaraki, UWE.

Most of us, be it in our professional or personal lives, focus so intently on the tasks that need to get done, that we rarely stand back to reflect on how we are managing them or ourselves and we rarely assess the impact we’re having on others. This session will draw on frameworks from the leadership literature to examine how we can become more reflective and approach life purposefully, from a creative rather than reactive viewpoint. We will look at concepts such as emotional intelligence and how we can improve our personal effectiveness through greater self-awareness, self-confidence, and self-belief. The emphasis is on providing you with a set of tools and ideas to help you think about who you are, how you are perceived and the impact you are having or want to have.

The talks will begin with Prosecco, canapés and networking. Then a ‘Phenomenal Woman’ will take to the stage to talk about the workplaces, the people, the challenges and the graft that lined her route to success. This will be followed by a practical business coaching session from a member of UWE business school.

With its location in the heart of this grand world heritage city, and just a seven minute walk from the train station, The Gainsborough Bath Spa is the perfect hotel in which to enjoy networking, business and social events.

“It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.”

The ‘Phenomenal Women’ talks at The Gainsborough cost £15 each.
