About this event

BT has been a member of the Corporate Partnership Programme since 2003. This longstanding and mutually beneficial partnership is celebrated annually at the BT-Pembroke Lecture.

BT Pembroke lecture 2020: Black swan or new normal? The changing face of managing during COVID -19

The COVID -19 pandemic has had huge implications for us all. How should companies respond to a pandemic and what does that response mean for their employees? Dr Richard Caddis will explain the role of a chief medical officer in a large corporation and how BT has responded to the pandemic. He’ll delve into the role of companies in ensuring their employees’ health, safety & wellbeing, and will explore what this and past pandemics can tell us about pandemics in the future.

He’s responsible for the development, strategy and implementation and culture change, and leads a team delivering the group occupational health service (OHS) provision, safety management and assurance programmes for BT Group’s UK and global operations.

Richard has worked on global outbreaks (Ebola, Zika, Swine Flu) and is currently leading the pandemic response to COVID -19. He has a vast range of experience from working at British Airways, Transport for London, Cathay Pacific and Capita.
