SAFSO Conference - 'Believe in You'

SAFSO Conference - 'Believe in You' 



Tuesday 3rd December 2019 at Kingston Maurward College, Dorchester



Join us at the SAFSO conference, taking place at Kingston Maurward College in Dorchester, Dorset, a beautiful location where SBMs, Finance Officers and Administrators across Dorset and our surrounding counties will meet for a day of professional development, an informative and enjoyable day with a keynote speech, workshops, networking, marketplace stalls.


Keynote Speech:


‘The Art of Being Brilliant’


The Art of Being Brilliant’ provides an antidote to the crazy world that typifies modern Britain. This workshop uses cutting edge research to explore how you can be you, brilliantly. The aim is to share some of the ‘secrets’ of Positive Psychology, focusing on learning new habits of thinking and behaviour that will sustain personal ‘brilliance’. It is about the ‘whole you’ and, as such, is applicable in and out of work.
