Visit websites like Forbes or Inc. and you’ll find countless articles on mindfulness at work, tips for stress management and the fight to keep technology from getting us down. What do these buzzworthy topics have in common? They center around mental health at work and while the topic is gaining traction in the mainstream media, how do you create the space to discuss it in YOUR workplace? What is the price of not discussing it?

Erin Barbossa will explain why mental health matters at work, the costs of stress, new (and educated!) ways to talk about it in the office and equip you with the tools you need to become an advocate for mental health in your workplace. Leave with more confidence to speak about mental health in manner that is useful, respectful and supportive.

ZINGTRAIN SPEAKER SERIES TICKETING TRUTHS Success means you get better problems. Here at Speaker Series HQ we've got ourselves some. So, we put some rules in place so that our problems, better or otherwise, don't become your problems: 

  • Buy 6 seats for the price of 5 - Yep! While we no longer offer season passes like we have in seasons past, we are still offering a similar money-saving deal with our 6-packs. Attend the whole season yourself or buy a 6-pack for your business (register with the name of your business) and send as many people as you'd like throughout the season. Buy as many 6-packs as you'd like! Share the pack with your friends, if you wish - sharing is caring!
  • 6-Packs are only good for Speakers Series sessions this season (through December 12, 2018). We will no longer be accepting season-to-season carry-over tickets -- it's a use 'em or lose 'em type of deal!
  • If you decide a 6-pack is right for you, we want to be sure we have a seat ready for you at the sessions you plan to attend. There are two ways to do that: either let us know which sessions you plan to attend after purchasing your 6-pack OR when you receive an RSVP email from us the Monday before that Wednesday's session. This helps us tremendously in planning and we really appreciate it -- you rock!
  • If you let us know that you cannot attend a session you've registered for 24 hours in advance, we would happily (well not happily, because we'll miss you!) refund your money. (6-Packs Excluded)
  • We will no longer be able to offer refunds/transfers if someone does not show up for a session they registered for. We're finally catching up with the way the rest of the world does it.
