    Free leadership and wellbeing workshops

    Optamor Blog

    Free online wellbeing workshops 

    We’re teaming up with some of the best people skills experts to offer our clients, contractors and candidates free online workshops on improving resilience, reducing stress and boosting emotional intelligence. 

    Why are we doing this?

    Now is the time to be here for each other, and by running these sessions we want to extend messages of positivity and hope. We want to help you use isolation to think differently and acquire knowledge you can take with you way beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    What will the workshops cover?

    Each workshop will be no more than 30 minutes long, giving you the opportunity to learn in a bite-sized chunk, whilst not taking up too much of your day. This is especially important if you’re also juggling care or parental responsibilities. Additionally each workshop will be made available after the session, so if you can’t join ‘live’, we’ll ensure that it’s sent out to you via email.

    Bio - Having had OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder) and heightened anxiety for most of his life, things reached a break-down point in 2012 - when everything came to a head.

Nick inspires not only by focusing on his story, but by offering his top tips and insights into managing anxiety in life and business.
