ICC Wales has launched a series of exciting online masterclasses designed to provide lifestyle and career motivation as well as a platform for attendees to connect with friends, colleagues and communities during these challenging times.
Running from February 26 to the end of April, ICC Wales Live will feature live-streamed masterclasses which are free to attend and open to all. The convention centre has teamed up with a number of expert speakers, from an endurance athlete to a professional home organizer, who will deliver masterclasses on a diverse range of topics to help attendees unlock their own inner brilliance, both professionally and personally. Each inspirational masterclass will be one-hour long and include an introduction from ICC Wales and a question-and-answer session at the end.
Jill Manley (pictured left), commercial director at ICC Wales, explains, “The past year has been extremely challenging for our industry so, while we remain unable to meet in person and stage face-to-face events, we wanted to create something that would be fun and enjoyable, as well as providing attendees with helpful tools and strategies they can take forward into their careers and lives. We’re thrilled to be working with some truly inspirational speakers and we hope that everyone enjoys the opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues while learning something new.”
The series kicked off on Feb. 26 with life coach Ken Kelling, who will lead a session titled “From Invisible to Influencer.” In this insightful session, Ken lead attendees on a journey to help them grow their personal career profiles and make them as unforgettable as the events they organize. Kelling’s session featured actionable strategies that attendees can use in their careers and lives, whether that is speaking up in meetings or launching a new business. If you have ever wondered what you could achieve if you had the courage to put yourself “out there” more, this is the session for you.
On March 18, join professional home organizer Vicky Silverthorn for her Q&A style masterclass called “Clear Thinking: How to Declutter your Home and Organize your Life.” As a household organizer to the stars and a regular contributor to Ideal Home magazine and TV shows including This Morning, Silverthorn knows a thing or two about streamlining your home so that the rest of your life follows, which is particularly important now that many of us are working from home. In her masterclass, Vicky will share the tricks of the trade to help you be more zen in your home and your life.
In a fascinating session on March 26, endurance athlete and TV presenter Lowri Morgan will share her expertise on “How to Apply the Resilience of a Long-Distance Runner to go the Extra Mile in your Career.” Morgan will reveal the motivational techniques that keep her going and explain how the single-mindedness, focus and determination she summons up for long distance running can be applied to reach your own milestones in business or to realize personal goals. Get ready to leave this session believing that anything is possible and prepared to set the bar high for your next challenge.
More masterclasses will be announced shortly as dates and times are finalized. To find out more and to register to take part, visit https://www.iccwales.com/live-masterclasses/
