Entrepreneurship is exciting, rewarding but also stressful. This workshop for entrepreneurs explores how entrepreneurs can thrive, be resilient and achieve ‘happiness’ both professionally and privately. Participants will take away insights on how to recognize stressors and develop strategies to manage their well-being.

The workshop mixes the latest research insights about entrepreneurs’ well-being with practical ‘tips and tricks’.

Those attending will learn how to spot drains on their well-being early so that they can mitigate them, and build a personalised strategy to help them thrive. There will also be networking opportunities and the chance to share personal experiences of, and strategies for, balancing work-life demands.

The workshop is organized by King’s Business School in collaboration with King’s Entrepreneurship Institute. It is led by Professor Ute Stephan and Dr Przemek Zbierowski, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow, both at King’s Business School, King’s College London with contributions from Helena Taylor-Knox, Business and Coaching Psychologist and Founder of One Continuum.
