During this event we will hear from Laughology – a company that that works with children and adults to define or change learned behaviors and inspire true inner happiness. Laughology teaches skills, based on neuroscience and psychology, needed to stay positive, motivated and to believe in your ability, using resources designed for and by businesses, teachers and children. Themes that will be explored include: confidence, achievement & success, positive relationships, support and coping skills.

We will also hear from Dr. Nerina Ramlakhan who is the go-to person when you want to learn how to sleep and well. Dr. Nerina regularly appears on TV and talks about the power of sleep and how it can transform you as a person and significantly impact your health. Dr. Nerina will explore the changes we can make to transform our sleep amidst a world of 24/7 technology and competitive demands. She will also explore why some people seem to be able to create a good balance in their lives – they are healthy, happy, optimistic, make time for relationships and sustain a good level of wellbeing and how the answer is nothing to do with age, gender, worth or type of work they do but instead, about making conscious decisions that bolster them against life’s hurdles.
