A word from our Development Director
 
I hope you are enjoying the summer months. The team has been busy preparing for the launch of the ASPIRE program. With less than a week to go until the application closing date, we are receiving a lot of interest in the programme. Interviews to select the 1st cohort will take place on the 16th September. We have had a number of HR Directors and Deputy Directors volunteer to get involved and i'm pleased that we are developing a collective approach to managing our talent.
I would like to remind you that we are moving to new offices and our new contact details are covered below. We would like to thank Lynn Demeda and the team at Guys' and St Thomas' for being so helpful and welcoming. We would also especially like to thank Nina Singh, Adele Kendrick and the team at the Royal Marsden for being such generous and accomodating hosts for the last few years. 
 
My final reminder is about the National HPMA conference and exhibition which is being held on 2nd & 3rd November in Cardiff. This should be a stimulating and interesting event for all our HR and OD staff, so please do book a place
 
Yours Sincerely,
Rachael Tyler, Development Director HPMA London Academy
