NCF was delighted to welcome members and invited guests to our annual lecture and dinner
on Wednesday 3 December 2014.
David Behan CBE
, Chief Executive of the Care Quality Commission, presenting the annual lecture 2014. The setting for this years' lecture and dinner was the magnificent Grade II listed, four-domed, Edwardian building One Great George Street, close to the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and St Jamesís Park.
The lecture was attended by senior directors of NCF member organisations and selected adult social care sector professionals. David Behan's lecture was well received and spurred a flurry of twitter activity on the future regulation of care provision and support for greater recognition of the excellent services in the not-for-profit sector.
Retweets and comments were flowing well into the following day from as far afield as Australia.
The NCF annual lecture is now established as one of the must-attend events of the year. Rhidian Hughes (chief executive of the third sector disability provider VODG) commented
"December wouldn't be December without the annual lecture. With thanks to @NCFsharon "
