ISMA’s Annual Conference - Growth 2018 

Friday 9th November


The Royal Over-Seas League, 5 Park Place, St James's,

London SW1A 1LR

Our conference this year will be the concluding highlight of the first-ever week devoted to stress awareness, with International Stress Awareness Day on Wednesday 7th and many other events and activities during the week, including a Stress Fair, On-line Global Stress Summit, and Stress Helpline.

We are also delighted to let you know that due to last year’s conference sell out, we have booked a larger room at the Royal Over-Seas League.

The Conference Theme Will be -

Does Hi-Tech Cause Hi-Stress?

Technology impacts on all our lives, so it’s appropriate that ISMA becomes involved in a debate about its far-reaching consequences, for better or for worse. We will explore –

  • The stressful effects of the 24/7 lifestyle that technology has brought
  • The positive contribution that technology can make, helping us manage our lives better

Your Conference Programme Starts at 09.00 and ends at 16.00
