EQ4 Africa Conference
Mental Health Breakfast Edition
19th May 2023

Building resilience for greater effectiveness at work

​Organizations have been presented with a new set of challenges in managing employee mental strength and emotional wellbeing as they adapt to remote working and distorted lines between home and work, all whilst navigating ongoing uncertainty and economic constraints.

The 4th Annual EQ4Africa Conference will explore how organisations can make a genuine commitment to employee wellbeing, building a psychologically positive and connected workplace.

Employees will be introduced to actionable strategies that can be utilized to navigate mental health challenges & maintain balance for greater wellbeing.

This conference is an opportunity for employers and employees to discuss a hugely important, but widely ignored and under-estimated, topic.
  1.  Discover real-world strategies for your organization and learn tips to kickstart and/or strengthen your workplace wellbeing initiative.
  2.  Learn how to leverage Emotional Intelligence as a tool to build greater resilience & maintain balance for greater wellbeing.
  3.  Discover the myths that exist for men & women around Mental Health & how to successfully navigate them.
  4.  Hear from well-respected industry experts in the fiends of Mental Health, Emotional Intelligence & Organisational Development.
  5. Listen to a personal journey about breaking the stigma of mental health.
