Being Human: The Power of Humour


Join us on 14th January 2021 for an exploration of humour, what it is, why we need it (now more than ever) and some practical tips on how to bring more laughter and levity into how we live and work.

People work best when they’re having fun; you only need to look at young kids playing (i.e. learning) to know this. Most of us at some point have worked with a colleague, or in a team, where laughter was commonplace; think back to what it felt like. 

Humour in the workplace, and in life more generally, is that almost magical elixir that can break the ice, cut through tension, and powerfully connect us with others, and help us see things for what they really are.

Please click here to register  and explore the power of humour; as well as celebrate our 19th Birthday with us!
