Maxine De Brunner led a leadership away day at Ipswich  Hospital NHS Trust. It was attended by over 100 senior clinical  and non-clinical leaders. She presented the excellent transformation programme which she had delivered for the Metropolitan Police Service. Maxine De Brunner was totally engaged with the audience. She developed a clear link between the work of the NHS and the police service, by sharing the  work she had led on and relating it to healthcare. Her style enabled her to get the best from the conference both during the presentation and  the Q and A  session.
