Boost#11 - Wellness in the Workplace
Tue 6 December 2016, 17:30 – 20:00 GMT
The must attend event for business owners wanting to keep fit & well and find focus in the busy festive season.
According to a survey carried out by the IoD on 200 British business owners, only 31% focus on their wellbeing in their personal lives and less than 40% have put in measures to support their staff's physical and mental health.
Christmas is a frantic time. Our diaries are full of places to be at all hours of the day and night and we experience that lethal up and down combination of extreme excitement with tiredness as we are trying to cram too much in and find time to relax and plan for all the New Year brings. Phew!
Staying well and feeling on top form is vital when you are running a business or want to be working at your best. You can’t afford to take time out because you don’t feel well and you need to make the very best use of the time you are working and feel focused and productive.
Our two guest speakers at this year’s Festive Boost will share their tips on how to;
- have energy all day long; boost your immune system so you’re less likely to pick up winter bugs
- cherish your body and mind when things get busy and be on top form for Christmas and the new year ahead
- find focus amongst the distraction and top tips for goal-setting
Food has the power to help you take control of how you feel. Our first speaker, Dr Rebecca Hiscutt, a nutritionist who advises companies on wellness in the workplace, is going to share nutrition insights and practical food tips (with real examples to taste) to help you stay strong and energised during December and beyond.
Our second guest speaker Caroline Arnold is a coach who works with managers to help them thrive, achieve promotion and make successful transitions. She will share with us the steps you can take to find your focus and set goals for the New Year ahead.
After Caroline and Rebecca's talks, join us for a glass of wine and some mince pies in an opportunity to network with other local business owners.
