The event will focus on mental health and wellbeing, and explore the challenges and opportunities experienced during the period of mandatory working from home in lockdown; and those presented as we all navigate the new, hybrid ways of working.

There will be two guest speakers on the day who will share their personal experiences on the subject, and what their respective firms are doing to help.
