Do OD events

OD Annual Conference

We have held a number of masterclasses and workshops to help to develop our NHS OD community to be the best that they can be, here's a selection of our events:

People Transforming Systems - 9 March 2017, Leeds
The event tackled a number of subjects including how we work in transformational ways, how we can contribute to the strategic goals of the organisation and how OD practitioners can position themselves. It also helped attendees consider what strategic OD means and how we can co-produce OD strategies with impact. 

Working in Complex Contexts Webpage - 22 November 2016, Birmingham
Our third national Do OD event of the year: Working in Complex Contexts – Stepping up to the challenge. 

OD in the NHS IV: Raising our ambition, deepening our practice - 15 July 2016, London
This year’s conference theme, raising our ambition and deepening our practice, set the scene for what has been Do OD’s best event yet. 

ODN Europe - 27 and 28 April 2016, Sunningdale
This event is attended by OD practitioners from across Europe and featured some of the leading speakers in the industry.  Paul Taylor and Karen Dumain attended the event along with four NHS OD practitioners and shared their experience and learning in a selection of blogs.

Do OD: Knowing systems thinking - 23 March 2016, Manchester
The event helped attendees to understand some of the theory and practice of systems thinking as well as experiencing a living system for themselves. We also looked at practical examples of systems theory in action as well as hearing from NHS guest speakers.
