UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 02 SEPTEMBER
The Shadow Secretary for Health and Social Care the Rt Hon Jonathan Ashworth MP is set to speak at a RBC-hosted conference aimed at helping people improve their health and wellbeing in the wake of the pandemic.
The Member of Parliament for Leicester South is the keynote speaker at the Intelligent Behaviour Analytics (IBA) Global Leadership Conference 2021 to be held in the Bradshaw Hall on Wednesday 8 September. The event will be opened by Birmingham City University Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Francis.
The title for this year’s conference is ‘IBA Global Leadership Conference; the road to resilience in a COVID-19 World’ and the event will explore individual experiences of the pandemic and the influence that effective leadership can have in high-pressure situations.
Featuring a panel of leading academics and specialists from music, medicine, healthcare and life coaching, the event also includes ‘Student Voices’ – thoughts and reflections of international students drawn from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and BCU’s Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences.
With a mixture of online and live presentations, the conference will build on shared experiences to promote tips and techniques that people can use to develop their resilience in the face of adversity, manage anxiety and bolster their health and wellbeing in the long-term.
In addition to the Shadow Health Secretary’s keynote speech, the conference will include a panel discussion offering different perspectives of the COVID-19 crisis with input from those at the frontline delivering essential healthcare during the pandemic.
The conference will also cover an IBA designed health and wellbeing pilot programme at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, which was tailored for musicians to help them improve their performance, but is also applicable to anyone who wishes to strengthen their resilience and boost their self-confidence.
Tickets and further information are available on the conference website.
