HSJ is delighted to bring you our first virtual event on the theme of sustainability, which will take place on 19 August 2020. The HSJ Sustainability Virtual Event will connect board-level peers and sustainability leaders for 3 hours of interactive live sessions, kicking off at 10:00 am, to tackle key topics and make strides towards a greener NHS.

By adopting a virtual event proposition, we are able to continue providing worthwhile interactive content in a more environmentally-friendly fashion, and with a reduced carbon footprint.

Virtual Event Format

The health and wellbeing of our attendees, speakers and staff is our top priority at this time. By adopting a virtual event proposition, we are able to continue providing worthwhile interactive content and updates, while staying safe at home and precluding the need for travel.

What to expect

  1. Free access to high-level strategic content, available to healthcare professionals across the system
  2. 4 live video sessions in the format of a panel discussion, with speakers dialled in remotely, each followed with a live Q&A
  3. Live participation with the opportunity to submit questions to speakers through the platform
  4. Access to on-demand content, such as additional pre-recorded sessions
  5. Post-event platform access to view recordings of live sessions, in case you were pulled away from watching in real-time!
