The joy, the hope, the human connection that can come from getting to know yourself and others better can help you stay focused on making your work and workplace better for everyone, especially those most under-served and under-estimated.
But what gets in the way? And what can you do about it?
In this webinar, Helen Farmer, Founder of FrankConversations.co.uk and voicebyvolume.com, will walk you through what works, and what needs to change.

These sessions take place every other Friday morning from 8.30-9am, for the BCI community to share their pearls of wisdom with one another. The half hour webinars will involve a 15 minute presentation followed by a 10 minute facilitated Q&A, with introductions from the BCI team.
Our community is full of such amazing talent so we’re giving members the stage to talk about things that excite them so they can inspire their peers. The sessions will be a mix of expert tips and tricks and case studies – the perfect opportunity to learn something new before the week is out.
Our usual online format is an interactive ‘meeting’ but for this series we’re running webinars so that it’s easy to listen in while prepping for the day ahead or while having your breakfast! Cameras and mics will be off but you can ask your questions through the chat box or submit them beforehand.
Please get in touch with Sian if you’re interested in speaking at a future session.

How to enhance your website so it works harder for you: a workshop with Atomic Smash
Watershed, 1 Canons Road, Harbourside, BS1 5TX
Your website is the central hub for your lead generation, customer experience, sales, marketing, eCommerce, fundraising or onboarding activities to revolve around. And with the right strategic roadmap in place, your website can be continuously improved and evolved so that it brings more and more value to your organisation. But if digital strategy and website evolution is neglected, this will block growth.
Join the Atomic Smash team for this workshop, where you’ll look at how website optimisation and evolution helps organisations within the creative industries to get the most value out of their digital platforms.
