Exercise The Mind: How lessons from Mental Fitness practice in elite athletes can give UK businesses & policymakers a productivity boost!

About the event

A Question and Answer Session chaired by Councillor Jackie Morris, Sheriff of Nottingham, exploring the topics of Mental Health and Mental Fitness in UK businesses. The panel will explore whether it is possible to learn lessons from the world of sport, and if implementing robust psychological wellbeing policies in the workplace really can improve performance and engender a positive organisational culture. Can we encourage a social movement in UK that reduces stigma and promotes proactive approaches to Mental Fitness at government and industry level?
