Event description
Join HR professionals, directors and senior managers to debate how Wellbeing at Work impacts your business, discuss the issues and complexities and enjoy a networking breakfast for a productive morning.
Yes, you are one of the businesses realising the legal and ethical reasons for looking at mental health in the workplace - but what does good practice actually look like?  What intiatives should you be building into your strategy that actually make an impact on productivity, success and happiness?
Join this networking business breakfast morning raising funds for Berkshire's ******* prevention charity, the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.  The seminar includes experts leading discussions and mini breakout sessions on how to support your business growth through addressing wellbeing - with a particular look at mental health, plus networking over a full IKEA breakfast.
Hear from panellists including:
Stacey Legg from IKEA: Stacey shares some of the approaches taken at IKEA to address co-worker wellbeing and support mental wellness. She shares how this builds into IKEA's overall wellbeing and employee engagement strategy with a honest approach to what works and what doesn't.
Judy Claughton BEng, DipBSOM from BalanceTime:  Co-chair of the event, Judy shares how practical approaches to communications, resilience and stress management based on foundations of mindfulness meditation are transforming businesses - with case studies from IKEA, WW (formerly Weight Watchers) and more.  We also look at the role language and communication plays in supporting or hindering mental health.
Katie Behrens BSc, MBBS, DRCOG, MRCGP, DOccMed, PgCertMedEd from the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust graduated in medicine in 1994. She has worked as a partner in a GP practice in central London; and at the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), London as a Medical Adviser working in the Occupational health team looking after FCO employees worldwide. She brings her experience as a workplace mental health trainer with CWMT.
Kev Waite from Move Mind and Body: Kev shares what it is like to live with bipolar disorder and examples of poor practice in a work place environment that can aggravate mental illness and how to integrate positive practices.
Helen Saxton from Charaderie: Co-chair of the event Helen shares how innovative approaches to communications, team building and employee engagement through story-telling and the 'problem' of solving an escape room or murder mystery puzzle can help to break down barriers and resolve team challenges not just in a fun team day - but in a practical way that makes a difference to the business.
Pete Mols from Outside Ideas, shares from personal experience of depression and an awakening within his coaching work seeing the number of people who were getting the business 'right' but at a cost to their health and relationships.  Pete shares why he believes there is a balance by working outside (conventional) ideas.
