4E: Achieving a One Trust focus

The culture of an organisation should flow from its values and ethos. In a MAT, this means the values and ethos of the Trust as one organisation.

This session will explore the importance of a one trust vision and how to achieve a balance of being one robust organisation with a strong brand and identity, while acknowledging that and the importance of local community.
