Interview with Professor John Allan: Balancing ambition and realism to address pandemic sequelae
Over the last few election cycles the RANZCP Board and its Presidents have pursued a conscious strategy of increasing efforts to communicate clear priorities to members and encouraging feedback on those priorities and other important issues. The COVID pandemic prevented delivery of the Presidential address as a centrepiece of the annual college congress, leading President John Allan to deliver an address at the virtual AGM in June. The address acknowledged the ongoing effects of the pandemic and the significant social disruption, but also highlighted the strong position of the RANZCP due to these years of strategic consolidation and the strong collaboration between staff and members.In this episode of Psych Matters, Dr Andrew Amos interviews Associate Professor John Allan about the Board's unchanged ambition to promote the health and welfare of the psychiatric community in Australasia.Associate Professor John Allan is the current President of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP). His term as President began in May 2019 and will conclude in May 2021.https://www.ranzcp.org/about-us/about-the-college/board/associate-professor-john-allanReferences:Australasian Psychiatry podcast with Professor Ernest Hunterhttps://journals.sagepub.com/page/apy/podcastsDisclaimer: This podcast is provided to you for information purposes only and to provide a broad public understanding of various mental health topics.

In this episode of Board Agenda, we interview John Allan, the Chairman of Tesco & one of the UK’s foremost corporate leaders to gain his insights about the role of non-executive directors, their responsibilities and priorities at time when their role on the board has arguably never been more critical, during a period of great uncertainty for business community & the economy of the UK. We discuss the key issues that boards should focus on in the current business environment, the questions NEDs should be asking senior management, how the pandemic has influenced the priorities for boards & companies, how boards can get the most value from their NEDs & the skills & expertise most needed on boards in these challenging times.
If you're at home or you've got some spare time, this is a nice opportunity just to stand back, I think, and say, "Well, where are those opportunities? What things can I do or perhaps my competitors doing that maybe I don't ever pay much attention to?" So this is a good opportunity. I think it's also an opportunity to talk to different partners and providers and talk to them about what trends and ideas they're seeing as well, because we're seeing that on scale in some areas. We're happy to talk to clients about what we see as opportunities.
