In our current situation, taking care of ourselves and our teams is not a choice: it is a must. When we introduce wellness, compassion, and kindness into our organisations (from any role), we entangle a chain-reaction of positive experiences beyond our comprehension.
As a leader, my mission is to create an organisation where people will grow, develop into the best they can be, and reach their full potential. A supportive environment, where the team can have the freedom to express themselves, a place where they WANT to come to work every day.
This makes total business sense, and is no easy feat.
This session will outline real-life wellbeing practices that we have applied at Shocklogic over the years at a strategic and personal level, and it will also include a live, guided mindfulness breathing exercise.
John has over 30 years of experience in the events industry as a PCO and technology specialist. He spent the first 14 years of his career as a PCO, before founding Shocklogic in 1997, where he now leads an international team to deliver event management technology. Thanks to his experience as a PCO, he understands from inside-out the opportunities and challenges that any membership-based organisation may face. As well as being an ICCA member for 27 years, he has also been on the ICCA board of directors, and a technology faculty member for the IAPCO seminars for 10 years. John has a PhD in Quantum Physics from MIT and has previously been named as one of the “Top 100 Movers & Shakers in Events” by Eventbrite.
