Episode 86: 10th October 2019

World Mental Health Day, ICE President on civil engineering, the Festival of Enterprise & Christmas (sorry).

October 10th 2019 is World Mental Health Day, a global initiative to place mental health in the spotlight and there continues to be increased emphasis on workplace well being to tip the balance. You can find and download the Myers Briggs report Heather mentioned here.

Our topical discussion this week is the dreaded, but always on time, festive season where we take a look at how your business can begin to plan ahead to avoid some of the annual pitfalls that take the sparkle out of Christmas. From boozy parties to planning rotas thinking ahead is your best friend. And if your business IS Christmas this report from Deloitte might make for interesting reading.

Talking of best friends, this week Tracy unearths some excellent Christmas gift ideas for the best friend entrepreneur in your life and invites anyone listening to take note of her current wish list which is undergoing a major overhaul in light of these findings.

Heather flags up The Festival of Enterprise which takes place later this month in Birmingham and which both Tracy and she will be attending. Free tickets and a full programme can be found at The Festival Of Enterprise website.

And finally, as part of the Glyndwr University Careers Fair we welcome a very special guest to the studio. Andrew Wyllie, CBE is the current President of the Institution Of Civil Engineers and he shares with us some of the exciting opportunities that face us in the years ahead.
