Life After Crisis: Mental Health and Wellbeing

When: Wednesday 20th May, 4:00 – 4:45pm

What: Panel Discussion

The current crisis is having a huge impact, both from a business perspective and on a personal level, on wellbeing and mental health. How can we come out of this with strength and confidence? The mental health stresses that we will be dealing with on our return to work may well be very different to those we were dealing with during the lockdown period. How can we give each other the space and time to readjust to whatever recovery looks like?

Panellists including Helen Moon (Eventwell), will be discussing mental health, self-confidence and how we can cope with what’s coming.

Social Media during Social Distancing

When: Wednesday 27th May, 4:00 – 4:45pm

What: Panel Discussion

Social media is imperative to the way we communicate as businesses and individuals, the way we market events and share films. But for the first time, for many, social media is now the only way people can communicate, not just with clients and customers, but with friends, family and internal teams. What is this teaching us about social media and communication via social media? How can we genuinely keep in contact with the people who are important to us and our businesses? And as everyone turns to Instagram (or Facebook or Twitter or TikTok), how can we keep our social media content engaging and creative?
