You are invited to a Building Resilience for the Modern Workplace event focusing on the lessons from both elite sport and today’s ever more pressurised workplaces. It aims to help managers and leaders create a more supportive environment and culture where all can thrive and achieve their potential.  This event is being delivered by Jardine Lloyd Thompson, and as the proceeds will go to the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Charity, City HR is pleased to support the fundraising for this cause on a highly insightful topic for our members.

The modern workplace has a host of potential stressors and most organisations have limited systems and programmes in place to support individuals and teams which can lead to a lack of organisational resilience when shocks occur.  The cost of absenteeism, burnout and mental ill-health is increasing and the business case for investment has never been stronger.

This event is hosted at JLT in the City of London on the afternoon of Monday 24th September and aims to provide a balance of interactive presentations with opportunities for Q&A and round table discussion around elements of individual, team and organisational resilience. The event will start with a buffet lunch and there will be a panel discussion towards the end of the day and a reception in the early evening for further networking.

Each of the five presenters are highly renowned and sought after speakers in their own right and have been assembled because they can share stories that will resonate at the individual, team and organisational level at work, as well as providing a perspective on resilience that will serve us well for life in general.

The insight will be provided by two Olympic Gold medallists from contrasting sports, Lizzy Yarnold in Skeleton and Greg Searle in Rowing, a Sports Psychologist integral to these Gold medal outcomes, a former Borough Commander of the Metropolitan Police and a leading research expert.

Attendees will leave with a host of strategies and techniques to apply for both themselves and the people they lead.
