business level but more importantly costly at a personal level, especially as recovery can take time.

The session teaches the signs and symptoms to look out for in ourselves and others and shares practical
steps to prevent burnout and look after ourselves better. Crucially it also highlights the protective factors

with strategies to prevent it.
The workshop is grounded in science and evidence, and is delivered by Dr Barbara Mariposa, Associate
at Work Well Being. Barbara is a thought leader in the field of wellbeing, emotional intelligence, mental
health, mindfulness, leadership, presence and the science that brings all these things together. Trained at
the Royal Free Hospital, London, Dr Barbara worked internationally, in psychiatry and public health.
