How can you take care of your team members and yourself when you are not able to connect in person? How do you safely discuss emotional content within an online structure? Navigating emotionally intense conversations in an online space can be difficult. Join entrepreneur Anna Westbrook and her colleagues across various industries in this short presentation and facilitated discussion on creating a safe space within an online environment. 

Anna Westbrook is the creator of Isabel & The Runaway Train, a musical theatre and professional development company that teaches people to support survivors of sexual maltreatment. In 2020, Anna successfully pivoted the Isabel training programs to be entirely virtual by pivoting around her unique brand and using that brand to re-frame her understanding of mental health and community engagement. 

During the subsequent facilitated panel discussion, you'll hear from: Junice Rockman, Neuropsychotherapist & Journalist; Andrew Shearer, Founder and Principal of the technology recruitment company BravePath, and Natalie Khoo, Director of the global copywriting agency Avion Communications. You'll also be able to provide your own insight into how your team is managing tough conversations and learn from the shared experiences of professionals across various industries in the start up community.
