October 10th 2018 (World Mental Health Day) saw the “Being Well Works Well” Conference come to fruition through the leadership of Common Unity.
Its aims were to provide networking opportunities locally, regionally and nationally in respect of the wellbeing agenda, highlight upstream services being delivered currently under The Connecting Community Networks programme, present new and innovative approaches that seek to ensure early engagement with wellbeing support opportunities and actively promote the opportunity for improved wellbeing in a range of arenas.
….and we believe it achieved this and more.
With in excess of 150+ delegates, 80 represented organisations, a range of experiential wellbeing stalls and a diverse set of forward-thinking speakers from across the board, The Being Well Works Well achieved way beyond our expectations.
We are still going through all the evaluations but 80% of the attendees that completed theirs told us the Conference was “excellent.”
To sum it all up!
We will be sending out more information in the next couple of weeks about the day and thanks to all of you who attended and made this day the success it was. It showed us that Birmingham and Solihull have a lot to celebrate about when it comes to Wellbeing services.
A special thank you to all our speakers on the day – Cherry Dale, Councillor Paulette Hamilton, Pete Trainor, Adam Page, Terry Rigby and Tom Howell.
