Description

RBWH is proud to welcome Chris Pointon, husband of the inspiring Dr Kate Granger MBECo-founder of the #hellomynameis campaign Global Campaign Ambassador.

Hello, my name is Chris and I am one half of the awesome duo that is ‘Chris & Kate’. Our lives were turned upside down over 5 and a half years ago when Kate was diagnosed with terminal cancer whilst we were holidaying in California.

Since that point we concertinaed our lives into a shorter period and crammed a huge amount into Kate’s time on this planet. Along the way we rose over £300,000 for good causes, travelled the world, met many celebrities and royalty and started a global campaign that improves patient care through the basic message of introductions entitled #hellomynameis. Kate’s legacy is huge and her name will live on forever through her legacy and various awards named in her honour.

Kate and I were fortunate enough to know what was coming and to be able to make plans accordingly for both Kate and for myself post Kate’s death. Alongside my role as a senior supply chain manager in a global retailer I now actively talk at conferences around the world to ensure the campaign continues for many generations to come.
