WCCSA - Professional Networking Event – ‘Time to be “Well”?’

Description: The sun has come out and naturally our vitamin D levels should increase, our smiles will re-appear and we will feel warm.

A stark contrast to the elongated winter for March, April and May.

They say, vitamin D helps in terms of COVID. Coming out lockdown will increase our COVID risks.

• We have got used to being alone, but even hermits have had enough of seeing their own faces on Zoom.
• We are soon going to have a degree of freedom almost forgotten but so sorely desired.
• We fear for our health, we fear how to rejoin the rat race and wonder will hybrid working solve our needs?
• Do we hug, embrace, shake hands or make personal contact in conversation, or will that risk our lives or offend a business colleague?
• Will we tend to shun people for fear they carry the unseen and now more virulent strains of COVID.

We all face these changes and due to our personal circumstances, our own unique environment and character, we are responding differently. This in itself complicates our re-engagement with our fellow humans.

We will be hearing from our four panellists who are more in the know on these matters than we are, shedding some light on why people are currently taking more strain than ever before, why human interactions are strained and work teams are showing the fractures of these pressures.

We look forward to learning how to understand our own circumstances and how to help others with whom we interface so that we can really enjoy being together again.

This is an important session for ourselves.
