Culture Camp: Cross-sector collaboration

Cross-sector collaboration: What’s working and what can we do better?

Register now

This session follows on from our 24 August Culture Camp, which was about exploring culture in our integrated care systems, with fruitful cross-sector collaboration being a fundamental part of their success.

In this session, you will:

  • Learn about the foundational theories/concepts that can help you build a culture for productive collaboration
  • Learn from system colleagues who are improving outcomes for people in our communities by working together
  • Hear about practical strategies and methods for successfully collaborating across sectors
  • Explore questions, barriers and opportunities for applying this learning to your current work


There will be a main session with interactive elements, and small-group breakout activities to give you the opportunity to reflect on how you can apply concepts in your organisation. It will also be an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues from outside your area.


This session will be chaired by Juliette Kumar, Associate Director, Culture and Workforce at the Innovation Agency.

  • Jen Kohan, Head of the Coaching Academy at the Innovation Agency, will present a number of theories and research on cross-sector collaboration, as it most relates to health and care, and integrated care systems.
  • Dr Shashi Khandavalli, GP Partner, Clinical Director for Chorley Central PCN, and clinical lead for Determinants of Health at the Central Lancashire Place Based Partnership, will be speaking about the value of truely embedding oneself in the community to improve population health and how he has seen success in recent projects tackling health inequalities in Lancashire.
  • A third speaker is being confirmed as of the end of October.
