“What Gets Me Up in The Morning and Keeps Me Up at Night?”
A Presentation by James Brayshaw & Leon Ferguson
Our world has changed dramatically. We are faced with constant stressors and ever-increasing demands on a regular basis. This unprecedented activity requires us to take extra care and ensure we are equipped with the education and tools to nurture our mental health.
Jim and Leon bring unique and practical insights into the current climate, helping us understand what is happening to our mind and body. Simultaneously, they will be looking inwards with unique perspectives, ensuring we equip ourselves with relevant, easy-to-use tools to problem-solve through these difficult times. At the end of the talk, you will have more insight into the benefits of these tools and how they will impact your ability to not only ‘get’ through these difficult times, but to ‘THRIVE’ through them.
