Event Description

Please join us for the next in our series of open, stimulating and informal AMED Writers’ Group discussions and activities. The nearest Underground station is Lambeth North.


Here is a brief extract from Alison’s invitation:


‘Some of the most important and valuable activities in organisational life are the most ephemeral and amorphous - conversations, stories, relationships, culture, power and feelings, to name just a few. They make up the part of the organisational iceberg beneath the surface of the water. In June, Alison would like to share with you some of her stories as a narrative writer whose job it is to make these kinds of activity more visible, as well as exploring with you what the phrase “making the invisible visible” might mean in your own working life.’


We have also invited Alison to be guest editor for the Spring 2012 issue of AMED’s journal e-Organisations & People.  During this session, she’ll say something of her plans for this edition, and extend an invitation to possible contributors.


‘Making the invisible visible’ is the title of one of the chapters in a book, fresh off the press, called ‘Communities of Influence: improving healthcare through conversations and connections’.  It’s published in May 2011 by Alison and her two co-authors, Elizabeth Lank and Jane Maher, and is available on Amazon, or via


Cost of workshop (payable on arrival) - Full AMED Members: £10;   Networkers and Guests:  £12.50


Please feel free to bring your own lunch.  Tea, coffee and water will be served.


And afterwards – an even more informal get-together at the Grand Union Pub   


Alison (E:; T:   07989 444562) and I look forward to seeing you on 17 June.  Meantime, please let me know as soon as possible whether or not you’re planning to join us, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or comments.


Best wishes.  Bob  (AWG Convenor)
