Welcome to the EventLAB Podcast, your window into the events conversation.

I’m your host, George Barker, and along with the EventLAB team, we’ll be bringing you a regular inside look at the events industry:

We’ll have the latest news.

Interviews with events professionals.

Practical advice on making modern events.

And we’ll make sure you’re up to speed with the major talking points from the UK events industry.

Our first episode will be going up soon, but first, we wanted to bring you a special recording of the talk “Practical Steps for Improving Mental Health and Wellness in the Events Industry” recorded in the Hire Space offices.

With events organiser ranking as one of the top five most stressful jobs of 2017, we sat down with four events and wellness experts to discuss actionable steps for improving mental wellbeing in the workplace.

On our panel we had:

Helen Moon, Co-Founder of Eventwell

Mark Maher, Events Director at [Boulevard Events](Boulevard Events)

Laila Datoo, COO at Last Word Media

James Routledge, Founder of Sanctus
