The free event – Post Covid-10 Lockdown Reboot: Helping Your Company Return To Business – will focus on five key areas:-
- Risk Assessment & Planning For A Safe Office
- Planning For A New Kind Of Office Christmas Party

- Corporate Gifting & Staff Incentives
Hosting the session Keeping Your Teams Well & Motivated is Dani Lightfoot (pictured above left), Managing Director of Best Foot Forward Training, who has 20 years of experience in HR, L&D and People Management.
At this time of social distancing Dani recognises that keeping ourselves and our teams motivated can be a particular challenge as there are a lot of distractions and underlying anxiety which can impede people’s ability to concentrate and communicate effectively. In this session we will look at and maintaining mental buoyancy, recognising when it drops and how to improve it. Equally helping you embrace the idea of being the lynchpin of your team, promoting and encouraging a supportive team dynamic. This session will help you elevate your motivation and promote professional assertive communication.
