Meet Our Advisory Board

Minal Bakhai

I’m Minal. Research from across multiple organisational settings including the NHS tells us that knowledge can be ‘sticky’.
This chimes with my experience during the pandemic. I’m keen we continue to build on this learning and help create an environment that enables us to effectively share knowledge, ideas and evidence to help us learn and adapt. As an advisory member, I hope to be able to share learning from my roles both as a GP and nationally in creating helpful spaces for debate, peer to peer learning, support and turning knowledge into action.

Charlotte Aston

Charlotte Aston is the current National Director - In hospital transformation - UEC, leading on work programmes that align to our acute hospital providers, supporting improved flow and right care in the right care settings for our patients.

Charlotte started her career as an NHS graduate within Human Resources, quickly realising she wanted to work closer to the patient, she left part way through the scheme to take up an operational post. Since then, Charlotte has worked across multiple acute providers with a focus on urgent and emergency care although she has also managed a range of surgical and diagnostic services. Career success has been recognised with numerous national awards in secondary care redesign and improvement and Charlotte credits this success to the amazing NHS staff she has been fortunate to work with over the years and a values base that always puts the patient first.

After a brief period with the National Emergency Care Intensive Support Team, Charlotte then joined the Midlands and East Region to lead on UEC Performance and Improvement before transitioning into the role of Regional Head of UEC for the Midlands.  The transition to operating across numerous healthcare systems all with their unique challenges and similarities, helped Charlotte to develop the wider skills and knowledge base that she hopes will support her success within the national office.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

It was great to join the Convenzis team again for the patient flow event. As always, the team were incredibly accommodating and happy to help. The quality of attendees is always of a high standard and relevant to the patient flow and to us also. We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

Catalyst BI -

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.

Zoom

I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
