Can you re-wire your brain? That was the question that our brilliant guest speaker, Caroline Dakin from Evolving Edge, answered at this month’s +24 event.
Personal resilience specialist, Caroline, works with businesses and individuals to improve their levels of productivity, happiness and life satisfaction. In a brilliant presentation, she explained how business leaders can rewire their brains to help them achieve their goals in life. Sharing some of the habits and practises of the most resilient people in the world, Caroline highlighted why resilience is an essential life skill and how you can develop your own levels of personal resilience.
As well as sharing lots of valuable advice, Caroline also demonstrated what happens to your body when you’re stressed. Many busy business leaders don’t realise the amount of pressure they are putting on their bodies every day whilst they are stressed. Check out some of the demonstrations from the event in the video below – maybe you’re one of these people!
Following Caroline’s presentation, we moved onto our charity auction. This was a one-off addition to our event as part of our fundraising efforts for our Pendleside Hospice Corporate Challenge. Find out more about that in our original post from last month. We were delighted to raise £400 on the day which all goes into our fundraising pot for Pendleside Hospice.
Thank you to all of the fantastic businesses who donated their services for the auction, including a full resilience psychometric profile with Caroline, copywriting support from Donna Neely of The Northern Edge, and a leadership workshop with John Garrod of Bridge Coaching. Plus, we offered a 2-hour social media workshop with me, a full branding review and refresh with Maria, and 2 tickets to join us in hospitality at a Burnley FC match next season.
