This event will share the insights from a literature review into the leadership skills and behaviours required to support anchor organisations. It will showcase the findings from the review, and bring together leaders from across the UK to discuss the results, and draw out the implications for practice and support the development of this agenda for leaders across anchor organisations working in health and care.

Julia is a freelance consultant, working across research, strategy and OD. Her background is in research and policy: She spent 8 years working on the social policy team at the new economics foundation, including leading a number of pieces of work on local economic development, and then spent 3 years at the GLA as the Assistant Director of Communities and Social Policy. She has also held board level positions in the NHS as a non-executive director in Tower Hamlets (the CCG) and Haringey (the GP Federation).

In 2019 she was awarded a Churchill fellowship to conduct research into anchor organisations in North America and Australia, and advised  the Health Foundation team in 2020 on the strategic direction they should take in relation to anchors work in the UK.
