She is Regional President of the North East Professional Speaking Association and a Professional Trainer of ‘Stress Express’ at Feel Good CIC.

Gillian will give us two techniques to ‘be in control’ that are simple to use with immediate benefits that can be used time and again at work or at home.

Ian & Gillian discuss;

  • How online meeting software has benefited lockdown
  • Not going back to the old ways of working
  • Adapting to change and the fear of the unknown
  • Anxiety and our brains reaction to change
  • How to get out of your 'stress response mode'
  • The uncertainty of going back to work

Whist on lock-down because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Ian Farrar wanted to create something special for the listeners.

Ian live streamed (Facebook, YouTube & Twitter) for 3 hours on the 19th June 2020 and interviewed 6 of his friends back to back!

We have edited those videos and created bonus podcast episodes.

The original videos can be watched again on the respective social media platforms.
