Trigger warning: cancer and stroke

What is it like to return to work after a stroke, or a diagnosis of cancer? How can you be helpful and supportive to a colleague living through this?

Two fascinating speakers are kindly sharing their experiences with you in this Posturite wellbeing at work webinar for both employers and employees:

  • Nick Hounsfield is the founder of the renowned inland surfing destination 'The Wave' and Chairman of Surfing England. He suffered multiple strokes in 2020.
  • Matt Eamer owns the successful me&you creative agency and is living with bowel cancer. He was diagnosed at the age of 39 and is an active advocate of the bowel cancer community.

We ask Nick and Matt:

  • What was the best and worst thing a colleague or client said to you when you returned to work?
  • What adjustments did you need when you returned to work?

To share his valuable advice and training, Josh Murphy from the Stroke Association also joins us to present '10 golden rules for employers' for supporting an employee returning to work after stroke.

This is a helpful webinar for HR and health, safety, wellbeing and EDI teams and with interest and inspiration for all.
