Join a group of health and social care organisations on a twelve month accelerator programme to become more responsive, adaptive and digitally focused.
We have two exciting and challenging programmes running to equip you for the big change you need ahead.
We have two programmes that are about genuinely understanding the shift to a digital world in an inclusive, human and non tech-jargon way. They’re big, bold challenging, and hopefully revolutionary for those participating.
Our programmes are about connecting all of the dots to make meaningful digital missions that everyone can take forward.
Please find more information on each of the programmes below.
Enabling a group of prospective disruptors to bring the digital to your org.
Next cohort starts Jan 2022
“If you are thinking of participating in the Community Digital Catalyst, then stop thinking and just do it! This course is one of the best experiences I have been part of in a long time: it is challenging, and it really makes you think and explore how organisations should be working in the new and growing world of digital. I have been part of this first cohort with two of my team and we already have several initiatives on the go. I look forward to every Friday session and to expanding my understanding of the possibilities.”
Christine O’Connor, Commercial, Business and Operations Director: Accelerate CIC
“I can honestly say that the Community Digital Catalyst has been the best training and development programme I’ve ever attended. The wealth of information provided each week by Liam and his team, in tandem with the regular mentoring and coaching the programme provides, has helped me personally to grow, and significantly helped push forward N3i as a digital first organisation. We look forward to sending more of our team on future programmes as they become available.”
Paul Freear, Head of IT Operations, N3i
“I joined the Community Digital Catalyst with 2 other colleagues to challenge our thinking on digital possibilities and work with like-minded colleagues from other CICs on ‘the art of the possible’. I didn’t want the traditional digital programme that focused on tech and just on IT solutions – but one where culture is viewed and explored as what ‘digital transformation’ is all about. The accelerator offers exactly this, and Liam’s passion for digital culture, for bringing what is happening in healthcare and other sectors, and getting me to explore ‘the big questions around here’ has really shifted my thinking.”
Petra Bryan, Associate Director Transformation at Locala Health and Wellbeing CIC
“The Community Digital Catalyst has been invaluable to me, it has really challenged my thinking and allowed me to reflect on work I have been involved in/ led over the years. Myself and my three colleagues involved are already starting to adapt approaches to digital, focusing on empowerment and development of our digital workforce. With this I am confident we are positioning the organisation to be an exemplar for digital change! For anyone wanting to develop skills and knowledge to support an organisation to become more digitally focused then this is absolutely for you.”
Mike Cosgrove, Partner Digital Support and Relationship Manager, at City Healthcare Partnership CIC
“The Community Digital Catalyst course is a fantastic elevator to help develop and coach individuals in understanding the digital transformation that needs to continue to happen in any organisation.”
David Bennett, Head of Care Coordination Centre, Medway Community Healthcare CIC
“Thank you for all the help you have given me and for opening the door to the world of digital. Your knowledge, curiosity and passion to share the possibilities is truly incredible and I’m so happy I have been able to be a part of the first accelerator. It has truly changed my view of the future, for the better!”
Senior Specialist Nurse on the Community Digital Catalyst
The Community Digital Catalyst – Disruptor is a 12 month accelerator programme to equip and support three people in your organisation to positively and responsibly disrupt with digital thinking, practices and tools.
The programme features an intensive first six months with 100 hours of learning and discussion, followed by another six months of 30 hours alumni sessions. In addition each organisation will have 24 hours of direct mentoring, that can be used for whatever you need, and available at the key points you need it.
Beyond this we will proactively build up opportunities for individuals to develop peer relationships and your organisations to develop collaboration opportunities, along with regular sharing of ideas, inspirational materials and resources to immerse yourself in on our online forum, along with session recordings and slidesets.
Next cohort starts January 2022
The Community Digital Catalyst – Executive programme offers a condensed strategic run through some of the most powerful ideas and concepts from the larger programme, delivered in a series of talks followed by discussion amongst a peer group of senior leaders, supporting and sharing with each other, and building relationships that can drive valuable collaboration down the line.
The series of 12 powerful and provocative thematic sessions will take place every 3-4 weeks, and be 2.5 hours in length (and recorded if you miss a session or wish to come back and revisit):
Industrial revolution – Care revolution – Analogue organisation vs digital organisation – Complexity and change – The hidden cost and opportunity of culture – Digital skills for a digital age – Gateways and governance – Digitising strategy – Digital by design – Data as a driving force – The future 24/7 employee – Digital commercial offerings.
The sessions will offer new and challenging content, that will make you look at your organisation differently, and to support your contextualisation the programme will include 8 x 50 minute mentoring sessions with our founder and the programme leader Liam Cahill.
To support peer community building and sharing we will host and facilitate four further informal 90 minute sessions – an introductory meet and greet, two open topical discussion sessions, and a concluding session. We will also host a private forum for participants to ask each other questions, share ideas and experiences, build opportunities and access the session recordings.
Next cohort starts November 2021
Recently we’ve been delighted to join a range of leadership networks to talk about the critical role that leaders can play in driving digital forward. It’s not all about the techie jargon but people, change, mindset, culture and environment. Here’s the recording.
