The Meetings Industry Association (MIA) is currently collaborating with globally reputable leadership and organizational development expert Roffey Park Institute for a campaign aimed to raise awareness of mental health and resilience in the events and hospitality industry.
This campaign is providing hospitality business leaders in Midlands an opportunity to take part in a focus group led by Roffey Park that would take place on 29th August, Tuesday at the NEC in Birmingham.
Three sessions would be taking place around 10 a.m., 12 p.m. or 2.30 p.m., and would last for duration of 90 minutes approximately.
The focus groups are scheduled to offer attendees the chance to learn the contribution of other organizations to build productive workplaces.
The CEO of Roffer Park, Michael Jenkins mentioned that creating efficient workplaces should be a part of business strategy for any and every business organization. This is because the benefits of improving human relations cannot be understated.
Attendees participating in the focus group would contribute to a fresh research towards the development of this industry and the findings would be demonstrated at a one-day event hosted by the MIA in November 2017.
Jane Longhurst who is the chief executive of MIA said that they would like to make sure that real progress is made towards making the industry a rewarding place.
Roffey Park would also be creating a special one-day workshop for MIA members with the aid of the findings of the study that would be available from January 2018.
