Friday 8th November 2019
Society Building, 8 All Saints St, London, N1 9RL
Our conference in 2019 will be the concluding highlight of International Stress Awareness Week, with International Stress Awareness Day itself taking place on Wednesday 6th November and many other events and activities during the week, including a Stress Fair, On-line Global Stress Summit, and national Stress Helpline.
The Conference Theme Will be -
RESILIENCE - the Power to Succeed!
Every year, an estimated 17 million days are lost to stress, anxiety and depression [Mental Health Foundation].
Some people cope with stressful situations better than others, mainly due to being more resilient. These people thrive whilst others around them crumble under prssure. But the good news is that resilience is not a fixed entity and isn't something that a person is blessed with, or not. It can be taught and the workplce is an ideal place for people to learn how to build their resilience.
ISMAs annual conference will be led by thought leaders from around the world and will address:
Discover proven interventions that can be implemented immediately back to the workplace.

Motivational Presentation by Inspirational Speaker Sally Kettle
'What does it take to row and ocean?'
Adventurer, author and public speaker, Sally Kettle has rowed across the Atlantic TWICE - once with her mother but before she set out she hadn’t even stepped on a rowing boat or been at sea! So why would a young woman from Northampton decide to take on 3,000 miles of open ocean? Join her to find out how and why she rowed the ocean, and the lessons learnt along the way.
The afternoon will be followed up with interactive workshops from leading Experts in the field.
The Conference promises to be a landmark event, with expert opinion from international thought leaders. Our conference sold out in 2018, so book now to secure your place and we look forward to seeing you at Growth 2019.
