It's been a busy summer, not least for personal reasons such as trying to get my daughter through the trauma of her GCSE exams. She did fine, since you're asking! But as any working parent knows, sometimes balancing home and work is a hectic juggling act. Especially when foreign travel is involved.
In May I was asked by the pharmaceutical giant Roche to head up their discussion panel at this year's World Health Assembly in Geneva. It was an interesting discussion on what needs to be done to address the growing cancer burden, encompassing Universal Health Coverage, the global cost of tackling non-communicable diseases, and government commitment towards screening and treatment.
The audience included ministerial delegations and health policy experts. It was a lot of hard work, but good fun and the discussions went down very well. You can read about it here
I'm now looking towards the Autumn with several projects on the go, one of which involves the launchof a new show for a Turkish TV company, and one which involves the World Health Organisation.
Hope you had a good summer, and do get in touch if I can help with any of your conference moderating needs.
