Webinar Series continue during COVID-19 lockdown

With restrictions in place and the country in lockdown, Cavan Digital Hub and The Hive in Carrick on Shannon came together under the Upper Shannon Erne Future Economy project to bring a series of webinars to their clients and extended communities.

Resilience

First up on May 6th was “The Psychology of Bouncibility: How to Build Resilience Within Ourselves”, delivered by Shane Martin of Moodwatchers. Shane has years of experience teaching the very best evidence-based psychology to help people protect their mental health and enhance the quality of their lives.

Both The Hive and Cavan Digital Hub wanted to give clients access to this webinar to encourage those businesses that were heavily impacted by COVID-19 to embrace their own resilience. During this initial period of the lockdown there was a lot of uncertainty and upheaval in both our personal and professional lives. As a support we wanted to offer clients access to the tools required to get mentally ready for the challenge ahead.
