Training Forum - December

How to create a less stressful workplace and empower employees.

This session looks at how to create a healthy, productive and mindful working environment. We will be joined by Sam Pearce, founder and lead trainer of Train of Thought which provides training to create a less stressful workplace and Learnerbly a learning and development platform which aims to empower employees.

The Training Forum is a free event hosted by external trainers, learning providers, and CPD related platforms. It is aimed at anyone who organises training or is involved in professional development at an agency. We hope that you leave the sessions feeling inspired while also learning a new skill. If there is anyone else at your agency who this applies to please email we will add them to the mailing list.

Busy isn’t working

This session will be run by Sam Pearce, founder and lead trainer of Train of Thought which provides training to create a less stressful workplace. In his previous life, he worked as an account man for a number for creative agencies, including adam&eveDDB, Mother, Havas and Kindred. Sam’s point of focus is on fear: how the modern world of work is causing us to be afraid, and how the resulting stress is affecting not only our well-being but our ability to do our jobs well. His sessions use skills from improvisation and mindfulness to help people and companies be their best in a challenging and ever-changing world.

Learnerbly - empowering employees to own their development
