The Mind at Work Conference

Event details


8:30AM – 17:30PM


Our mind is a precious resource. And when we don’t look after it, our ability to thrive and do great work is affected.

The Mind at Work Conference is being held to raise funds for the incredible charity Young Minds. It’s designed to give you a new perspective on investing in your mental wellbeing.

Filled with top speakers, interactive sessions and practical workshops, you will be immersed in the workings of the mind – discovering tools, techniques, and ideas that will help you to work smarter, live happier and feel better equipped for the daily pressures our work and personal lives can bring.

Morning Sessions:

Is Your Mental Health Above Or Below The Line Today?
Fiona Magee, Consultant at Rubica

Where do you think your mental health is today? What can affect it both positively and negatively? What impact do mental health issues have on today’s organisations? What tools can you use to help you take care of your own mental health and support others to look after theirs? How can Mental Health First Aid training improve the wellbeing of individuals and organisations?

Get the answers to these questions and more in this lively, interactive session.


Building team resilience.
Miranda Wheatley Price, Director of Organisational Change at Rubica

A resilient team isn’t just a collection of resilient individuals. It is a group of people that work collectively and with a shared sense of ownership and commitment; who focus hard on what matters most, while supporting and challenging one another to leverage their strengths; and who collaborate and distribute effort to minimise stress on any individual.

Based on the latest organisational change theory and decades of practical experience, Miranda will help you to discover how you can build your teams resilience through 4 key building blocks – from day 1!

Burnout. The cost of high achievement no one is talking about.
