Event Details


Embedding wellbeing practices in to event teams and events to create more resilient, focused, happy and successful employees and delegates.


A recent article cited the event manager role as the fifth most stressful job in the UK for the second year running*.  EventFuel believes that a robust wellbeing programme within organisations can show significant increase in productivity of your team, reduce stress levels and in turn increase efficiency and successful events. 

The EventFuel breakfast explores what event organisations are already doing, what you can do to enhance the wellbeing of your team and how you can incorporate these in to your event delegate experience to keep them fresh and engaged.

Hosted at the Andaz, attendees will have the opportunity to experience the new wellness delegate package and provide on the spot feedback.

Focusing on self-awareness, stress resilience and creating a positive mindset, we will be incorporating practical exercises, from mindful moments to chair yoga, that you can implement immediately.

Secure one of the 25 places available at EventFuel and join us on the 11th August.
