Professional Development Workshop
Date
Saturday, 23 October 2021 - 10:00am to Saturday, 30 October 2021 - 7:00pm

The pandemic has tested the depths of human resilience and ingenuity. Most organizations have witnessed radical transformations and their most valuable resource: their people enhanced their digital capabilities to stay productive and afloat.

Communicating virtually has now become more necessary than ever. But we're often reminded that the quality of human connection we’re experiencing isn’t fulfilling enough. We often feel disconnected, frustrated, and misunderstood compounded by an increase in loneliness, mental anxiety, lack of motivation and a sharp rise in employee burn-outs.

How do we fix this and get things right so that we love our jobs? Join the British Council experts in October to get onboard a new approach to working virtually and building human connections.

Workshop fee: INR 1200 per participant per workshop.

Special discounted fee of INR 950 per participant per workshop for the British Council library members.

Participants will receive a digital certificate on completion of the workshop. Check out the details below.
