Great response to resilience and burnout session at Swindon Marriott

By Anita Jaynes on June 06, 2016

Organisers of a training and awareness course on resilience and burnout have been delighted by the response by local employers.   The Swindon Mindful Employer Network is staging the session at the popular Swindon Marriott on Monday June 27 with two guest speakers. Mike Godfrey of Business West, who is also deputy chair of the network, said:

“We have had 130 bookings from local employers wanting staff to attend this workshop and it appears we have found a subject which is of interest to businesses locally. Many employers are now concerned about the mental resilience of their people in a challenging, competitive and uncertain environment. This will be a fascinating event for everyone concerned.”

The Swindon Mindful Employer Network has brought together two top experts for the first time to help local businesses understand the value of mental resilience and how to reduce burnout amongst their workforces.

Adrian Embling of Mindset Wessex is a popular speaker and trainer on mental health issues and he returns to the Swindon Mindful Employer Network with an updated version of his resilience training – with an additional session on avoiding burnout. Joining Adrian as a special guest will be Susan Buckle who is Astronaut Education Program Support Manager at the UK Space Agency. The UK Space Agency is based in Swindon where it employs around 80 people at North Star.

Susan and Adrian will be joined by Melanie Richens, the Chair of the Swindon Mindful Employer Network and a tutor at the UK College of Personal Development.

Places for this event are available for representatives of Swindon Employers only. Booking is essential.
