Randomised Coffee Trial – connect, collaborate, create.


Connecting people, encouraging collaboration, breaking down barriers.

If you were to ask people in your organisation, “Would you like to meet more people?”, the answer would probably be “Yes”.

However, in today’s world, face to face meetings are not currently possible. Not only are we socially distancing, people work in different departments, different buildings, different teams and even in different countries.  Randomised coffee trials are a brilliantly simple way of connecting people who wouldn’t normally get the chance to meet and have a conversation. They are proven to encourage people to work collaboratively and break down silos.

Helen Bevan, Chief Transformation Officer, NHS Horizons said, “Often, as leaders, we are aware of what is going on in our organisations but we are not as involved or connected as we could be. Randomised Coffee Trials are such a simple but powerful way of getting meaningful connections going which can lead to real change.”

The autumn 2021 NDHT and RD&E randomised coffee trials are now open. Sign up to be paired with a colleague in the opposite site to where you are usually based. Just thirty minutes to meet with a new colleague can make all the difference.
