The story of award-winning Whose Shoes?

Free Event • Registration Required

We are delighted to welcome Gill Phillips to The Shard in September to share the success of Whose Shoes? – a revolutionary multi-perspective approach to transforming health and social care services.

Gill recognised that seeing issues from different perspectives can help build social movements for change. Her award-wining Whose Shoes? puts the person in the centre to shape the services they use in a truly holistic way.

Through sharing her journey from working in local government to becoming an award-wining entrepreneur, Gill hopes to empower and embolden the audience to believe we can all make a difference.

We look forward to this session which promises to be lively, inclusive and relaxed – Gill encourages everyone to engage as equals, regardless of their roles or organisations.

18:30 - Presentation, followed by Q&A
