WIBF are delighted to be working with the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investments (CISI) to host Tess Allen. With a background in theatre, education and coaching, Tess has been a Director at Forum Interactive Ltd for 20 years. She works in partnership with clients to create memorable learning programmes, workshops and events across all sectors. Her passion is creating opportunities for deeper learning that energise and motivate and provide us with the skills to have really meaningful conversations at work.

This practical workshop is designed to give you the skills to stay in the moment in situations where you may feel challenged emotionally and/or mentally. Drawing on Emotional Intelligence theory and drama skills there will be the opportunity for a short practical session followed by discussion.
