Supportive group events for learning, sharing & evolving

nurturing employee resilience, engagement, wellbeing
& Mental fitness through interactive workshops

for teams & Groups

Hands up, if you’ve read a self help book or listened to a well being podcast. You are probably familiar with the wealth of knowledge you gain from their fantastic insights and ideas. But, the real challenge lies in implementing those insights into your life.

How many of you have applied these learnings?

How many are now part of your normal life? If you’re hands went down, so did Connected Ape’s  – you’re not alone. This is fairly normal.

Workshops offer a cognitive breath of fresh air

When our clients who attend our workshops “step away from their desk”, their daily routine and their to-do-list, it changes the dynamics of their day. This can help reduce the stress and emotional load on their Limbic Systems, making them more relaxed, open to learning and ready to engage with new information, people and perspectives. We prefer to keep content delivery varied, interactive and suited to different learning styles. This can include splitting into break out rooms with 1 or two others, lively plenary discussions for the whole group and more hands on, creative or physical activities to keep the learning fresh and interesting.

"I loved the work shop about resilience, that I took part in run by Bernadette. We were provided a safe space to voice our thoughts and feelings. Bernadette is warm, open and delivered a workshop that was informative and fun.

I came away feeling more positive than I thought I would and realised that I was more resilient than I thought I was. Thank you Bernadette."
