Chamber Launches Summer Series of Self-Development Seminars

The Black Country Chamber of Commerce has today launched a series of FREE webinars in association with award winning performance and development coach, Wendyanne Shapiro from Lotus Flower Consultancy.

As this year’s National Mental Health Awareness Week draws to a close, the current Coronavirus pandemic has given many a chance to push the ‘reset’ button on their lives and for some, their careers.

The Chamber has launched a 12-week series of 90-minute online, self-learning and development sessions to help those who may have felt a little overwhelmed in recent weeks, and for those who have had to pivot, not just in their personal life, but in their role and function within an organisation and who are steering their way into an unknown future with different possibilities and opportunities.

The frustrations people have over not being able to work, or even the very uncertainty of a job at the end of this crisis, has made many reassess what’s important in their lives and careers.

Beginning on the 4th June, and running through until the end of August, the Chamber are encouraging professionals to tap into each of the six topics, and whilst all are stand-alone, each one dovetails with the next to help individuals with their own personal and professional development.
