At the Online Global Stress and Wellbeing Summit, which ISMA is convening on Wednesday 9th November, as a highlight of International Stress Awareness Week, Professor Sir Cary Cooper CBE will present the keynote address.

Considered by many to be the Father of workplace wellbeing, the influential Sir Cary Cooper will focus on approaches to building organisational resilience and wellbeing.

His keynote will explore ways in which businesses can build resilience and enhance employees’ mental wellbeing, including the role of the emotionally intelligent line manager.

Far-ranging agenda

Other highlights of the event include Emily Hutchinson’s session focused on “How to break the stress cycle” and and interactive panel session, featuring BITC’s Louise Aston which will explore “Strategies for improving health management for better wellbeing”.

Other notable sessions on the eclectic agenda include a fireside chat with Baroness Harding of Winscombe exploring strategies we can employ to separate work-related worries from our lives in the home environment, and a taboo-busting conversation between Phil Sampson and Maggie Stevens entitled “Dying well”.

Diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2019, Phil will reflect on what it has meant to him and his family, how he now views the world, and the importance of purpose.
