Session 1: Who am I and what is my story?
Story telling is one of the most compelling ways to bring a team together, to share experiences and learning in a non-judgmental way. Think about the best stories that you were told and the impact that they had on you. It is also important to recognise who you are and what you bring to both the story and your organisation. By mixing the two, you can influence both your own and others development.
This session will share with you tools to support your own self awareness along with some ideas as to how to share your story and engender connection. This interactive session will require you to download the Lumina Splash App from either Google Play or App Store beforehand.
Cheryle Britton, Founder YOLO Wellbeing

Following a journey with her own mental health, it was some Ayurvedic treatments Cheryle experienced whilst on a family holiday in Sri Lanka, in 2018, which sparked the idea for YOLO Wellbeing.
