Mr Annakan Navaratnam is regularly invited to speak at conferences, both here in the UK and abroad. Illustrating his active involvement in training the next generation of surgeons, Annakan delivered the Keynote Lecture on leadership in surgical training to the Pan London ENT trainee meeting on the 15th April.

The 9th May was a big date in the UK’s rhinology diary as the annual meeting of the British Rhinology Society took place in Cardiff. The BRS meeting is the most established national meeting covering both rhinology and nasal plastics and this year Mr Sam Warburton, a Welsh rugby legend and the former captain of the British and Irish Lions, delivered the Storz Invitational Lecture.

At the meeting, Annakan delivered a keynote lecture on the present & future use of AI in Rhinology and appeared on a panel discussing selection criteria for septoplasty assessment and listing for surgery.

He was also delighted to be voted on the council at the British Rhinology Society as a national representative for England at the meeting.

Finally, on 22nd May, Annakan delivered a multidisciplinary teaching session with anaesthetic colleagues at UCLH on airway emergencies at the Airway Hub meeting.
