Hospice UKThis week we will be speaking at Hospice UK’s national conference in Liverpool. James (our founder) will be speaking at 13:30 on Wednesday in a presentation titled Thinking ahead and looking back.

MyWishes hospice ukJames will explore how the internet has changed the ways in which the internet has rapidly changed how we remember those who have died, and the ways in which we think about and plan for death.

Dying for change? Your opportunity to be at the forefront of the revolution.

We’ve known for many years that revolutionary change is needed in the way society approaches death and dying, and that we need radically new ways of meeting the challenge to provide effective, meaningful and compassionate care at scale.

We also know that genuinely revolutionary change is difficult to achieve amidst the daily pressures and constraints of maintaining and extending our services.

We’re inviting conference delegates to join us in a dedicated, highly participative workshop on 20 November to explore how a ‘prototyping’ approach to designing new services can help us to manage risk while unlocking new ideas and creativity.

In this workshop we’ll learn about prototyping and work with colleagues to plan small-scale practical prototypes to take forward at your workplace. You’ll then be able to join a ‘community of imagination’ in which participants produce radical and safe prototypes and learn from one another. Together we will be developing the insights and interventions that create radical solutions for the future.

This session isn’t for the fainthearted! You’ll need to come with open minds, ready and willing to participate fully – during and after conference.

The event management company which manages registration has now contacted everyone who registered interest in the Revolution workshop. The deadline for confirming interest is 25 October. There are a limited number of places at the workshop and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
