Being Human; The Power of Play

We explored The Power of Play with our amazing guests Catherine Dernulc and Paul Woolmington, who provided an insightful and engaging conversation to the importance of play within the workplace. Using play within teams and organisations can foster innovation, build stronger connections between individuals and teams, and forces us to think and behave differently.

Being Human; The Power of Humour

In January this year, we explored humour; what it is, why we need it and some practical tips on how to bring more laughter and levity to how we live and work!

We were joined by Francis Gilson (comedy producer at BBC), Paul Boross (psychologist, humourologist and pitch doctor) and Neil Mullarkey (improviser, author, facilitator and speaker), who shared their wisdom and knowledge of humour and how it can be utilised in the workplace. We also spoke to Sam Teo (consultant for just add water Asia) who shared some light on humour being used in Singapore and the differences of humour used across different cultures!

 Wellness v Burnout

In December 2020 we (just add water) were joined by Elizabeth Cowper, the founder of The Ludo Partnership, and other experts in the field, Katie Millet and Vanessa Moulton, to explore how we can both recognise the signals for oncoming burnout and how to counter it.

Being Human; Beyond Resilience

From March to June 2020 we (just add water) hosted a series of virtual practices titled Being Human: Beyond Resilience; where we explored what it really means to be resilient in this hybrid world we find ourselves in, as well as developing habits and rituals to practice to prepare for whatever might come next.

This series was extremely successful, with over 700 participants from all over the world tuning in to engage with our fun, fast-paced and interactive practices.

Since then, we have been running our Being Human: Beyond Resilience series extremely successfully with current and new clients. Creating bespoke and tailored workshops to run either organisation wide, or with leadership teams; specifically focusing on the characteristics, behaviours, and mindsets to carry individuals, teams, and organisations through these challenging times.
