I have been involved with the World Health Innovation Summit since it was founded in 2015. Working directly with the CEO, Mr Gareth Presch and his international team I effectively supported the development of a culture that put focus on the value of local communities to people who work in or use health care services.  My role was to work in partnership with all who work in or use the health system to share experiences, innovations and aspirations. I developed the WHIS PODS structure; Mission, Vision and Value Statements, Terms of Reference and completed Frameworks for global WHIS teams to run Summits. I have supported Gareth in the development of the WHIS global team through PPI and provided international secretariat services for the operations team.

Roles: Director, COO, Ethical Governance Team Lead & Secretary.

“Olive’s innovative mind will play a big part in how our health and social care services will be developed locally, nationally and internationally. “

Gareth Presch, CEO World Health Innovation Summit [WHIS]

“Olive is a patient leader who has all the qualities needed to be successful. She listens, ascertains facts and acts with integrity. Olive is a patient leader who leads by example and I’m proud to work alongside such an inspirational woman. Olive’s innovative mind will play a big part in how our health and social care services will be developed locally, nationally and internationally. Olive to me represents what a social entrepreneur should be – a person who acts in the best interests of the community and it’s something that Olive does time and time again. She is a true champion of our community and is destined to make a difference not only today but for the generations to come.”
