Eleven fantastic new speakers will share their stories from the TEDxNHS stage, including our previous chair and current ‘Learn Not Blame’ lead Dr Jenny Vaughan, who will be talking about how we need to tackle the ‘Blame Culture’ in Healthcare. You can look forward to a full day of TEDxNHS magic, including TED talks, poetry readings and performances.

Dr Yasotha Browne, DAUK EDI lead

Dr Browne is a TEDxNHS coach for Yvonne Newbold’s talk this year and was previously on the 2020/21 communications team.

Dr Browne has co-coached Yvonne Newbold’s talk for this year. Founder of Newbold Hope, Yvonne Newbold MBE is an expert-by-experience in Learning Disability and Autism thanks to her son Toby and her unwavering curiosity for best practice. In her TEDXNHS talk she talks about her struggles of parenting and the harm of knowledge as well as support deficits in what is needed to help care for SEND children that led her to eventually create her own foundation to fill the gap in resource that she and Toby experienced. Newbold Hope provides help support and training to parents and professionals who care for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and young people who behave in difficult and dangerous ways.

Dr Browne says:

“It’s been an absolute delight to work with Yvonne and the rest of the TEDxNHS team I’d like to give a special shout out to Liz McIntyre my co-coach in crime. Coaching gives you a wonderful view of a speakers insights and their personality and often universal truths that really enrich and connect. Yvonne has depths of wisdom that have clearly come from living a very challenging life and is a very bubbly tenacious and incredibly caring and inspiring human. This talk is not to be missed and as someone that is neuro-diverse I hope it does what is intended which is to invite openness and insight as well as hope. Dare to look at things differently and always stay humble enough to challenge your truth for the sake of human connection and betterment of each other.”
