Why this day out of the office is worth the investment.
Think of the last conference or networking thing you went to. Uninspiring rooms, stale biscuits and feeling like you’d rather be somewhere else?
New research suggests we work more effectively, creatively, and collaboratively when we’re happy at work.
How do we become happier? Apparently, it’s not just about making lots of money.
Being outdoors, learning new skills and building a network of ambitious and motivated like-minded professionals are ways this event is going to boost your happiness in the job.
Richard Branson believes the formula is simple:
Happiness –>Productivity –>Profitability
The skills you’ll bring back to the team include:
Everyone writes. Emails, social media posts, books – the creative writing workshop by Stranger Collective will be valuable at whatever level you are. You’ll pick up skills to convey your message more effectively, which will stick with you for the rest of your career.
Whether it be for a small group or a large audience – it’s likely that at some point in your professional life you’ll be presenting. Danielle, from The Diving Belle, is a Ted Talks speaking coach who has created a particular kind of training, developed around the principles of focus, depth and support. The kind that she’d want, as an off-the scale introvert herself. Training that would allow anyone to gain skills and confidence, no matter your level of fear.
Whether you’re working as a freelancer, in a corporate environment or as an independent business owner, you have a brand.
You’ll be taken through the branding process by experts in creative design and branding. You’ll take part in a unique experiment, and help name and design the brand of the event – whilst doing that, you’ll learn what small or large changes you can make to improve your branding.
In addition to the workshops, there will be inspiring talks by Daisy Griffith – social media guru, Amelie Trolle of Eden Project, Richard Blake from Yallah Coffee and Ernest Capbert – co-founder of Finisterre and Who Buys Your Stuff.
You’ll return refreshed, motivated and full of ideas.
If you’re thinking of heading to any corporate events, or even similar events in other parts of the country, you’ll probably pay triple. We think £120 (no added VAT) is pretty affordable for what you’re getting – workshops, speakers, skills, coffee, tea, snacks, lunch, long table feast…
See you there?
