Announcing EventWell’s new wellbeing and mental health bitesize workshops, designed to educate and develop understanding of the importance of self-care, especially in the events industry.
1 in 3 event professionals will experience diagnosable mental ill health each year, and this is increasingly becoming a normal part of life, with the World Health Organisation forecasting that depression will be the leading cause of the global burden of disease by 2030, so it has never been more important for us to invest in our physical and mental health than now.
Know your worth: When you avoid things that make you feel physically and mentally well, you deplete your confidence and self-esteem.
Self-care is important to maintain a healthy relationship with yourself as it produces positive feelings and boosts your confidence and self-esteem.
Also, self-care is necessary to remind yourself, and others, that you and your needs are important too.
EventWell’s bitesize workshops aim to educate on all areas of self-care, to equip you with the tools and information you need to make better decisions when it comes to your health and wellbeing.
Our upcoming webinars, and live open and in-house workshops are listed for you below:
BUILDING RESILIENCE FOR EVENT PROFESSIONALS: Looking after our mental health whilst working in events is a dynamic process and can be influenced by many factors.

This session explores the lifestyle and life skill factors that lead to positive wellbeing and mental health for all event professionals.
DELEGATE WELLBEING: This session explores the areas of an event that contribute to the overall wellbeing of your delegates and attendees (and in turn your own), so you can see the areas that you could dedicate attention and focus to achieve better balance. Happy delegates = happy event planners!
