90% of our London workforce recently came together to celebrate their work at Humankind’s London Regional Roadshow.
The first of the 2024 series of our Being Human Regional Roadshows took place in London on Tuesday 16 January and was attended by 90% of the organisation’s workforce from across the capital.
The day featured a series of speakers, including our CEO, Paul Townsley, who looked ahead to the future of the organisation as well as our Executive Medical Director, Dr. Roya Vaziri, who spoke about some of the great work happening across Humankind nationally.
There was also a focus on regional excellence and pride as the Director of London and South, Lyndsey Morris, celebrated the region’s progress and other people shared their proudest moments from the previous year.
The purpose of the event was to bring together professionals from the region to share ideas, celebrate the successes and look forward to the future.
Tom Colley from the Pier Road Project spoke about his experiences working with the innovative Ketamine Project in Bexley. There were other presentations from Liz Legge and Anita Leslie about the work of Lewisham Primary Care Recovery Service (PCRS) and Alison Beeton-Hilder who talked about some of the work which is taking place in our Better Lives Family Service in Islington.
As part of the celebrations, Lee Wilson, Regional Director, and Dr. Roya Vaziri gave out individual awards to colleagues who received the most recognition over the last year. Collective awards for team performances in the region were also handed out.
The day featured a number of interactive sessions for people to meet their colleagues and share learning from across Humankind’s services.
Director for London and South, Lyndsey Morris, said:
“It was great to see our staff from across the region come together to receive recognition and celebrate the great work that we do. Having some of the services showcase what they do reminds us of our impact on the people accessing our services and how we can best support them to have the best possible chance in life.”
