FREE online event: 4 & 25 May, 5.30 – 8pm | Organised by Ad:Venture and Leeds Trinity University

About this event

Resilience is defined as the ability to bounce back from adversity, frustration, and misfortune and is essential for the effective leader. This workshop will teach you practical and proven psychology tools that will improve your own resilience in difficult situations so that you can remain in good mental health. The aim of this session is to help you recognise when you might need support and develop self-confidence and motivation. This workshop will identify ways in which you can enhance your own resilience within the business context.

Leeds Trinity University are working with Ad:Venture to deliver a series of workshop activities, where they will be exploring themes such as:

  • What is resilience, and why is it important for business success?
  • Strategies to manage stress and build resilience
  • Reflecting forward

Tailored materials will be provided for you to work on between sessions to encourage reflective practice and facilitate meaningful discussions.


The session will be facilitated by Dr Danielle McDermott, a Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology, and Dr Lisa Webster, a Senior Lecturer in Psychology. Both have delivered training – Dr McDermott in emotional management, and Dr Webster in resilience and wellbeing – and bring a wealth of knowledge and research on wellbeing, reflective practices, and related topics.
