  • Publish Date: Posted 20 days ago

​Shirley Parsons Quality Managing Consultant Jess Plested will join a panel of speakers at this years Quality Live to offer her expert advice on getting ‘Beyond the Accidental Quality Manager.’

Quality Live.

Quality Live, which takes place on Thursday 20th June, is the CQI’s flagship event which brings together thought leaders and quality professionals for a programme of talks and interactive workshops.

This year, the event will explore important themes impacting the profession, including the rise of AI and digital innovation, the growing importance of cultivating a strong quality culture and, strategies for companies to manage risk and enhance resilience in an ever-changing world.

Following CQI research, there is an ongoing challenge of attracting new talent into the quality profession. This is part of a wider skills problem impacting many other professional domains, made more difficult by the need to attract more diverse skill sets and backgrounds into quality as we deal with digital and sustainability agendas.

During the panel, Jess will be joined by James Nelis, Charlotte Bradley and Judith Ward for their discussion on how to make Quality Management an aspirational career choice.

Jess says:

“I'm really excited to be speaking about ‘Beyond the Accidental Quality Manager’ at Quality Live 2024. I have a strong passion for the quality profession and I am eager to contribute to its evolution and growth by attracting top talent to this field."
