The Covid crisis has hit our industry hard and, the industry landscape is changing in terms of roles within creative communications, experiential marketing, live and business events.
There are many of us in the industry that are going through the trauma and upset of having lost our jobs and been made redundant, this panel session will aim to provide answers to the following:
How should we now be approaching continued professional development?
How can we use the many up-skilling opportunities to make ourselves stand out from the crowd?
How can we rebuild our self esteem so that we can better manage knock-backs?
How has the pandemic and the changing landscape impacted on company culture and, are employers becoming more empathetic to the needs of their employees and teams?
Join us for this event as part of 9 days of action for Event Wellbeing Month 2020 with our esteemed and specialist recruitment panel.
