Our 2020 calendar is bursting with interesting and stimulating events just for you, covering topics that are current and relevant to you and your business. From looking after your mental health in the workplace all the way to the dreaded B-word, we’re here to inform and assist your business. However, we acknowledge that making new contacts and gaining new clients is rather high on your priority list. Therefore, we run our Networking Breakfasts monthly so you can start your day off right by meeting new people, learning something new from a possible guest speaker, whilst most importantly, all over a breakfast!
Hosted by one of Chambers events team, we like to keep the agenda simple: Networking, breakfast and then a little more networking – We told you it was going to be simple! To break up the networking we like to throw in one or two activities. Nothing too difficult or daunting, but just to get you all talking!
Our Guest Speaker
James Brown from The Happy Workplace
Topic: If the workplace were a fishtank… How to cause flourishing and why that’s good for business.
The cost to UK business of poor mental health in the workplace.
- An overview of what research in psychology and the behavioural sciences tells us about well-being and happiness at work and its impact.
- What you can do to be happier in your own work.
- What you can do to help your business create an environment that promotes happier and more productive staff.
For all our Networking Breakfasts we welocme and encorage businesses to bring along any of your literature or roll banners as we like to use these events as a great way for you to promote yourself to a group of Surrey Businesses.
Early in his career James supported people with severe and enduring mental health problems. Then, after gaining a masters degree in Occupational Psychology he worked in education research, quickly progressing through the management ranks to senior leadership positions in children’s services. Twice elected president of the London Education Research Network, James is also a member of the British Psychological Society and a Principal Practitioner Member of the Association for Business Psychology. An epiphany a few years back led to a major shift in leadership style and the development of his near obsession with the link between performance, productivity and well-being. In addition to his work he regularly appears at conferences either in the chair or as a speaker.
