A full day engaging with inspirational speakers and experts, who can advise and guide small business owners in workplace health & wellbeing.



Grow your Mindset have teamed up with a range of local speakers and experts to bring a full day, concentrating of workplace health and well-being.

Across the UK, businesses have growing concerns and challenge when faced with mental illness within the workplace. 1 in 6.8 people experience mental health problems in the workplace, which equates to 14.7% of the UK’s workforce (Mental Health Foundation – www.mentalhealth.org.uk). Businesses are challenged by the remaining stigma of mental illness and in the recognising of symptoms before affecting staff absence.

We are inviting proactive business owners to spend the day finding out a range of practical ideas that can help prevent and alleviate the symptoms of mental illness, increase employee engagement, raise self esteem and improve physical health.

Businesses who invest and care for their employees will reap the rewards through: Employee satisfaction, customer orientation and focus is increased, higher company profile, increased productivity and quality, lower attrition, improved life balance, improved company performance in all areas

Workshops for the day will be held by:

Gemma Sanchez and Elizabeth Cronshaw (Grow Your Mindset) - Growing mindsets and change lives. In our interactive and highly reflective session, find out why mindsets underpin everything we do and the value of improving mindsets for your business. Once you start changing your mindset to a more positive one, everything around changes too. That can only be a good thing for you, your employees and your business, right?

Helen Christie (face2faceHR) - Coping with Workplace Stress - Stress related absence costs UK business around £1000 a year per employee! That’s a lot of money for an SME, so it makes sense to have some strategies in place to reduce the financial impact, not to mention the productivity benefits of having a happier and healthier workplace. The 2 most common causes or workplace stress are workload and management style. In this session I’ll give you a taster of how managers can identify, prevent and address stress and give you some simple techniques to help employees manage their own workplace wellbeing.

Jamie Butterfield (AXA) - Employee Experience: Why it Matters. As a business owner or leader, what is your number 1 priority? If you didn’t say “my people”, you’re letting your employees down, which is impacting your bottom line. In this hour long session I’ll give you a whistle-stop tour of the importance of putting your people first. What I’m going to tell you isn’t rocket science, nor is it expensive. I’ll show how you can make a huge difference, simply by recognising what your people do for you and by giving them the right work environment. Can you afford not to change?

Jozef Korab (JK Chiropractic) - Did you know that lower back pain is one of the leading causes of absence in the workplace? What can you do to increase workplace attendance and performance? In this session, we will cover the causes of lower back pain and how to avoid it. We will look at how to self-assess lower back pain, how to repair it, and how to return to pain free activity. All this, in turn, will ultimately increase workplace productivity and profit.

Danny English (CommuniTree Outdoor Education)- We live in a fast paced world where our health and well being often slip to the bottom of our ’to-do lists’ day after day after day. We know however that our health and wellbeing are essential if we are to function at our best and meet the challenges that are presented to us each day. Three key elements play a vital role in our well being: connection with nature, connection with community and connection to craft. Take a deep breath, relax and join Danny for 90 minutes in the great outdoors to improve your wellbeing by making deeper connections with yourself, each other and nature.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided for the day

We advise you wear comfortable clothing and bring suitable outdoor clothing for the day. Many of the workshops are practically based with your participation.
