I am delighted to inform you that we have appointed a new Chair to the Board of Directors of IC24.

Judy Oliver - BA (Hons), Barrister, FIPD, FRSA - brings a wealth of experience in executive coaching and development for directors and people in organisations across all sectors but particularly local government and the NHS.

In addition to providing bespoke development programmes for Boards and Executive Teams, she has successfully designed and delivered key strategic development programmes for clinical leaders in the NHS, including clinical leaders in the new Clinical Commissioning Groups, clinical directors and consultants in hospitals and GP and specialist registrars.
 
During the last two years, the portfolio of work has been heavily skewed towards mental health and primary care. Judy and her team have trained GP commissioners for mental health, Learning Disabilities and Dementia from East Anglia to Kent to Cornwall, facilitated the National Task Force on Children’s Mental Health and Wellbeing and been working increasingly with emerging GP federations as well as facilitating the new National Maternity Review Team. In addition, they have been supporting a range of different health service providers and often facilitating between commissioners and providers to make sure service users and patients get a better deal.
 
Judy is an accredited assessor for the Myers Brigg Type Indicator and has qualified as a Thinking Environment Consultant and Coach with Nancy Kline and a Transitions Consultant with William Bridges in the US. Judy was a non-executive director in the NHS for twelve years with two hospitals and a Primary Care Trust. Prior to starting her own business, she held senior roles in local government including Head of HR for Education in Kent County Council and Advisor to the Deputy Chief Executive. Before this, Judy worked for BP for seventeen years in a variety of personnel, industrial relations and legal roles across the spectrum of the oil industry from exploration to marketing. Judy has a degree in Business Studies and is a qualified Barrister, specialising in Employment Law. She has recently co-authored a book about the development and future of commissioning in health and social care and is a Visiting Fellow at the Bournemouth University Institute for Health and Social Care.
We are delighted to have Judy working with us.
