This webinar is hosted by D2N2 UpScaler in partnership with Nottingham Business School, D2N2 Growth Hub and East Midlands Chamber and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

UpScaler presents the lunchtime laughter session where our guest speaker Fiona will take you through the importance of getting into the right mindset for business and will share some of her ‘go to’ tools and techniques of how to do this through fun and interactive exercises, encouraging you to reconnect with your inner child. The exercises are something you can then take forward and implement into your team idea generation sessions or buzz meetings at work to inspire and motivate.

LOL Laughter Works will follow with a 40 minute workshop that will leave participants feeling the benefits of laughter and have a greater understanding of how laughter has a positive impact upon the stress levels in the body.

Candidates will learn a few practical tools for self care and enjoy a lovely lunch time meditation.

Embrace your inner child, relax, and laugh into your self care .
