The Coaching Academy is proud to support the health and care system in the North West Coast by offering learning events and representing the Innovation Agency on a number of regional and national partnerships.

Culture Camp

The Coaching Academy is proud to offer Culture Camp, online events where we explore organisational culture, looking at wellbeing, equity and innovation as well as collaborative working across the system. The full videos of our excellent and high-profile speakers are available on YouTube.

You will be able to catch up on three sessions:

  • On December 1 2022, Culture Camp focused on collaboration between the health and care sectors with fascinating insight from people working in the both areas of the system.
  • In August 2022, we welcomed nearly 200 people to discuss culture in the integrated care system, a timely topic, during a half-day online session. 
  • Exploring organisational culture from the perspectives of wellbeing, equity and innovation was the topic for spring 2021. We presented a two-day online event discussing people and mind-sets, relationships and systems, and strategy and sutstainability. The second day was an 'unconference' sharing learning.
  • Our next Culture Camp is planned for summer 2023 and will be on a topic based on your feedback from December 2022. Please watch this page and our social media channels for details.
