October meetup: Three Keys to Resilience

October 23, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

What is resilience?  Often we search for a snappy response, like bouncing back or the ability to deal with stress and adversity – and they might satisfy as overall descriptions. But, what does it take to become more resilience, what aspects are there to resilience, does resilience relate to ethics, should organisations help develop resilient staff, and how do they apply to me? The answers to these questions are often more nuanced and worthy of a discussion like the one we’ll have at this meetup.


6.30-7:00pm: Arrive and meet other attendees and members of the Ethical Reading team

7:00-7:05pm: Welcome and introduction

7:05-7:20pm: Talk by Mark Quirk

7:20-8:30pm: Roundtable discussion

8:30pm: For those who wish, retire to the bar to continue the conversation

Speaker: Mark Quirk, Msc, Reach Remarkable Ltd

Following a 20+ year career in the software industry, Mark eventually wrenched himself away to follow his passion for the mind and wellbeing.  He retrained in Psychology, and followed the UK recognised path for training as a Mindfulness teacher.  Today on a mission for health, happiness and strength he tries to make the years of research behind resilience, mindfulness, mindsets, brain science, models of wellbeing, and strengths a reality for all those he is fortunate enough to work with.
